Early Dialogue Day
Early Dialogue Day
On this day, producing companies and artists present work at the very early stages of creation to venues, promoters and producers with the capacity to produce the work of other artists. This process provides an opportunity for both parties to discuss artistic plans 12-24 months in advance of the production stage and for promoters/venues/producers to feedback and express their interest. A panel of experienced promoters/venues select an exciting collection of artists/companies to present on the day, who will represent both established and newer voices aiming to tour across a range of scales, genres and audiences.
About Early Dialogue Day 2017
Early Dialogue Day took place on March 15 2017 at The Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock. In response to promoters/venues who attended Early Dialogue Day in 2016, we selected a lower number of artists/companies presenting during the EDD 2017 to allow them and the venues/promoters longer time for dialogue and discussions. Please see below for more information on the 7 artists who presented in 2017.
The objectives of Early Dialogue Day are to:
- Provide a platform for artists/companies to present one proposal for future work to programmers
- Allow/encourage people to have early-stage conversations about their work
- Create opportunities for artists to build touring networks for their work
- Look at developing a 3-way relationship between creator– venue – audiences
- Explore the possibilities of collaboration or co-producing
- Ultimately make companies and venues more informed and sustainable
What 2016 participants had to say about Early Dialogue Day
‘It is an opportunity to keep up to date with what is going to be coming up in the future and an opportunity for those who can support companies in the development of work to offer this.’ Fiona Low, Howden Park Centre
