Afternoon session


2pm Pivoting Your Purpose (Part 2): Seeing Digital in 360
Led by Patrick Towell of Golant Innovation and The Audience Agency.
Digital maturity is all about integration of digital across your organisation. And about treating digital the same as non-digital. So what happens to us venues – and in some cases producers – when we begin to blur the boundaries, as our customers and the rest of leisure and entertainment have already done?

3pm Creation in Isolation
Facilitated by Laura Woodward (Producer at Farnham Maltings)
This panel includes:
Lucy Askew (CEO and Creative Producer, Creation Theatre)
Mojisola Elufowoju FRSA (Artistic Director, Utopia Theatre)
Lucy Garland and Amber Onat Gregory (Artistic Directors, Frozen Light)
Paul O’Mahony (Artistic Director, Out of Chaos) 

The panel will reflect on their experiences as artists and innovators over the past year; sharing some of the ways they’ve made their work, and that of others, available to audiences.

All sessions include time for questions and answers at the end.
