Theatres Trust keynote - notes

It was an honour and a joy to give the opening keynote at this years Theatres Trust annual conference, on the topic of placemaking. The day was packed full of fascinating, inspiring and useful case studies of projects up and down the country, a great insight into how others are approaching the placemaking challenges in their areas, a very beneficial knowledge exchange.

Thank you to Jon Morgan and team for putting it all together and creating a programme that really got to grips with the subject matter across a diverse cohort of stakeholders. 

The slides and notes from my keynote can be found here, defining what placemaking is, what placemaking means for theatres and theatre practitioners, and challenges for the future.

Theatres Trust keynote

In October, I will be giving a keynote at the 2017 Theatre's Trust conference - I am delighted to be talking to such an audience and looking forward to the other speakers and the conversations that will arise throughout the day.

The conference this year focuses on placemaking and theatres and I will be talking about the agency of theatres in place-based work and the role of theatre buildings in placemaking. 

Further information on the conference can be found here and tickets are on sale.
