Drama Now! 2014 Conference Follow Up (Members)

This event is specially for all those who attended London Drama's non-residential two day Conference: Drama Now! ~ and the Way Ahead on Thursday 10th April and Friday 11th April 2014 at Goldsmiths College, New Cross in partnership with Goldsmiths Centre for Arts and Learning (CAL). It is an opportunity to continue the active exchange of ideas and methods between you as practitioners which you reported was a key element of the Workshop Conference.

However, if you did not attend but would like to hear how everyone got on then you are very welcome to attend too.

This free follow up event will provide you with an opportunity to share developments that have happened for you since the Conference whether in the form of a practical sharing, a discussion, a reflection on your experience at the Conference or any other kind of input. It is a way of keeping in touch with one another, re-enjoying the experience we all shared and to maximise the inputs and outputs relating to it.

Any excuse for a Drama get-together, in fact!

As it is a free event it will not add to basket but book by simply emailing us at londondrama1@gmail.com.

See you there!

Date and time: Tuesday 3rd June; 6.30-8.30pm
