Thanks to Caron Jane Lyon for guiding me through Zoom and managing the process behind her screens, and to Josh Foyster who is workingw ith me as a virtual Placement from Mountview on the development of Producers' Pool.
For anyone needing access support please let me know and if we can help we will. If you need Zoom set up in a particular way, or some helpful way of running the meeting which could be useful, please let me know. I suspect you are the expert on your own needs, and what could help. Don't presume I will have thought of it. Thanks. [email protected]
We create a quiet room in the Zoom structure and we have a route offsite to take questions or any concerns via our system admin created by Caro Lyon.
I also welcome recommendations for the future, when we will look to run on-the-ground and in-the-cloud meetings without the challenges of isolation. [email protected]
Do I need Zoom ? - you don't NEED to have it downloaded but it gets a better experience for you. Takes a moment, and we will send a helpful guide for anyone who can't work out how to do it.
Why Charge - everything online is free ? There is a two tier charge mindful that CGO has to cover some costs to manage PP, but that available cash for those not on salary is very scarce. If CGO was a funded body or generating income from Memberships, then this would be free - but Membership of Producers' Pool is free and then you pay a small charge for each event. Hopefully £1 or £5 feel small enough.
Please send me any other questions and I will update FAQ as needed.
CGO works as a facilitator, coaching, producing, and teaching organisation working with UK and international theatre practitioners. We are based in Blackness, Edinburgh and London
