Hosted by Dr Ally Walsh, School of Performance and Cultural Industries, University of Leeds.
A public-facing in-conversation event with Clean Break Theatre Company and Slung Low reflecting on the civic and social work of arts organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each arts company has a long history of being deeply embedded in their respective communities, this event considered how this has positioned them to attend to an intensified need during this global crisis.
Featuring the two companies and responses from Dr Jo Shah (Social Performance Network and CSSD); Dr Kara McKechnie (PCI/ Leeds and freelance dramaturg) and introduced by Dr Sarah Bartley (University of Reading and Women/Theatre/Justice researcher).
