Fri 13 Sept 14.30 – 16.00
Fern Smith and Rhodri Thomas co-founders of Emergence â€¨will facilitate a participatory inquiry into the role of the arts and artists as change-makers. World CafÃ© is an open and informal technique which uses the collective wisdom of groups to address a number of over-arching questions of relevance to the people present in the room.
The questions will be related to the people and projects we have individually encountered which inspire us to create a more sustainable practice in our life and work. This will be an invaluable opportunity to meet and share with other designers, theatre makers, producing and receiving houses and to follow a line of enquiry in an open, honest and structured manner.
The World CafÃ© methodology is a simple, effective, and flexible format for hosting large group dialogue.
The World cafÃ© will be preceded by an introduction to the work of Emergence, the ideas which have inspired it and itâ€™s impact to date on the arts scene in Wales and beyond.
Open to all.
