*Step into the Bankstown Arts Centre’s rehearsal space and join your peers for a tightly knit exploration of audience diversity and how we build it. The atmosphere is informal but the 3 hours of time together over afternoon tea, will reveal clever examples and a cohesive process for developing audience diversity.

We all have our own experiences of audience diversity but what does it take to really achieve it? TNN’s guest speaker Kristine Landon-Smith, Artistic Director with UK-based ‘Tamasha’ theatre and NIDA Lecturer will outline the how’s and why’s of audience diversity from both a UK & Australian perspective.  TNN’s guest facilitator, Fiona Winning, Head of Programming Sydney Festival 2015, will weave us through a truly connected conversation designed to focus on what we do well, what we need to do it, as well as some actions to take away. Special Guest ‘provocateurs’ for will ensure that our sector’s focus on diversity is strong but your voice and experiences are just as critical to the afternoon.

Our provocateurs include:

  • Sonny Dallas Law (Independent & Performance Space)
  • Rosie Dennis (Urban Theatre Projects)
  • Michelle Kotevski  Riverside Theatre
  • Annette Shun Wah (Performance4a)
  • Karen Therese (Powerhouse Youth Theatre).
