Power, Gender and the Arts

Part of the Saturday Sessions

A morning of provocation and discussion that continues this cross-festival conversation about power and gender in the arts.

What can we do to achieve gender equality in the arts, on stage and off? How do we make meaningful and lasting change at last, in our programming and in our working practices? Join us with speakers including Ifeoma Fafunwa (HEAR WORD!), Nadine BenjaminCatherine Mayer (Primadonna Festival), Emma Gladstone (Dance Umbrella) and Alicia Adams (John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts). Lucy Kerbel (Tonic Theatre) will chair the event.
