Make. Do. And Mend.
Northern Stage and Forest Fringe
19th August, 10.30am-4.30pm.
You are invited to a day of action. A gathering of the many kinds of people that make up the Fringe’s remarkable community, not to talk, but to act.
With the help of some inspirational and provocative contributors, we will spend the day imagining and implementing real solutions to problems you suggest. Our attempt to change theatre (and perhaps the world) for the better – in one day.
Beginning at St Stephen’s and concluding at Forest Fringe, with a collective jaunt between venues – including a new work created by Third Angel especially for the event.
The day will be structured around three questions, one proposed by Northern Stage, one by Forest Fringe, and the third proposed by you, or if not you someone like you.
Northern Stage want to ask how can a national artist find a local audience?
Forest Fringe want to ask what does radical even mean these days?
As for the third question, we want your suggestions of what it should be. If you have a suggestion please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to include some explanation of why you think this question is important.
