Event description
DISRUPT will explore how the performing arts has supported communities during the pandemic and encouraged new and radical ways of working.

About this event

Let’s not beat around the bush, 2020 was a shocker.

Despite everything, we’ve had to adapt. Theatres working as food-banks, dance classes are digital and community centres have risen to the challenge, more than demonstrating the crucial role they play in society. 2020 has been tough, but creatives and communities have proven themselves tougher.

With a programme created entirely from open submissions and selected by a panel of 15 community members and artists , the festival will bring together creatives, artists, communities, cultural and community organisations, researchers, charities and schools, harnessing collective learnings from an arduous year to reimagine the role of the arts in our societies. Over the 2-day festival, there will be discussions, panels and workshops developed around the commissioned works and their learnings and challenges.

DISRUPT is partnered with Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Barbican, Culture Mile, Maya Productions, Slung Low, Lived Experience Network, and Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance.

It's time to unlearn, rethink and restructure.
