Following our inaugural discussions/meetings Nov-Jan we are delighted to welcome special guests for this month's meeting of Scotland based producers across all live artforms. Join us on Tue 9th Feb 6-8pm to explore the Future.
We will be joined by: Dr Drew Hemment of Future Everything, and welcome back Dr Matjaz Vidmar from the Edinburgh Futures Institute and Lesley Anne Rose founder of Aberdeen's Open Road who joined our January meeting. How can we see the world differently, work and create differently, and envision the future we wish to inhabit. This is about us, and those we work with and are supported by. It is not about them This will, like all PP meetings be a collaborative conversation. We will glean a little of the wisdom and opinion of our guests, and much more find ways together to take some inspirational actions. Let's see hw we might see things differently.
Producers' Pool has grown in 5 years from a small meet in a London pub to a cloud-based network of 550 independent and building based producers of theatre and the performing arts. We welcome people in training and those who have been there and got the scars. We have contributers from around 15 countries who work with or in the UK scene. In this strange pandemic cloud-based world it seems the perfect time tocreate PP(Scotland). Whilst PP was originally concieved as a theatre based network, Producers' Pool (Scotland) goes much wider. It is for any freelance or employed, aspiring or established producer (ie someone who makes stuff happen for other people) across all live artforms welcoming a live audience (as soon as we can). Whether you produce live art, folk music, festivals, opera, dance, theatre, participatory arts, comedy or student theatre - you are welcome. .
Please join us at whatever stage of career you are, whatever creative producing discipline you are in. Conversations across artforms can create new realisations and new collaborations. We will grow this Scottish network to complement existing sector specific meetups and organisations. We don't want to reinvent the wheel, but we do want to broaden conversations across the Country.
Everyone will have time to contribute. We will use smaller breakout spaces so people can meet properly. As well as big subject areas, like the Future, PP has two core questions "what do you need?" which someone in the meeting could help with and "what can you offer?" to others through the gift of time, talent or even treasure. Producers' Pool is there to help make connections.
