Devoted and Disgruntles: unconventional conference for theatre and performing arts people at New Diorama Theatre, London from 20 - 22 January 2018
(see attached DevotedDisgruntled13 eflier)
Devoted and Disgruntled 13: What are we going to do about theatre and the performing arts? the unconventional conference for theatre and performing arts people at New Diorama Theatre, London from 20 - 22 January 2018.
This year due to generous support from Royal and Derngate, Northampton and the Core at Corby Cube via funding via Arts Council England's Changemaker programme, we are able to provide better access support than ever before at an annual D&D event. Their generosity means we can pay for plenty of BSL interpreters, extra support staff, neurodivergent-friendly spaces, text to speech and audio signposting for blind and partially sighted people and we are consulting in the run up to the event to ensure that theatre people with and without disabilities are able to take part fully this year.
In addition our hosts, New Diorama Theatre are offering free tickets for BAMER artists who would otherwise struggle financially to attend.
Tickets are at their lowest price ever - Tickets are £20 full price and £10 concession for the full 2.5 day event. As D&D is such a great CPD opportunity, we are once again offering a "5 tickets for the price of 4" group offer, which works out at £16 a head.
You can find more information about the event on the website here and I have attached a pdf flier. We would be really grateful if you were able to pass this info on to your chapter.
I am a huge fan of D&D. With them, I have had some of the best discussions, often with people I've never met before, and always come away with more clarity and passion about what I want to do in theatre - and life! Emma Rice, Artistic Director, The Globe
More urgent and necessary than ever. Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
