Webinar Wednesdays is a series of free resources for professional dance artists. Each session focuses on skills that may be particularly resonant, practical and nourishing now and that may help us reimagine future realities.
Marginalisation and Change: How can artists work in these times? With Kim Simpson
The impact of Covid-19 on the performing arts sector is huge and artists are also dealing with the shifts in context that it has catalysed. What has become even more visible is the inequalities in our society and in the arts and this raises many big questions that we must grapple with together:
Referencing her own collaborators, learning, tools, processes and values, Kim Simpson will lead a discussion to begin unpicking some of these questions.
This webinar will take place on Zoom, hosted by Artist Development Producer Amy Bell. Zoom links will be emailed to everyone who books a place online. Each session will be recorded and made available as a subtitled video resource on The Place website.
