About this event

You can listen to the audio version of this copy here.

Cirque Bijou and Theatre Bristol invite you to join Dreaming in the Big Top, an event that will hold space for dreaming, enable us to think about reopening after the pandemic and consider how we build a fairer, more inclusive arts and culture scene.

It is for anyone working in live performance in Bristol who is ready to think about the future of theatre and the role they want to play in it.

There is an agenda to help us stay focussed but we are asking you to choose what is most important to you in advance of the session by voting here.

This event is free to take part in. All you need to do is register below and we’ll send you more details about the event closer to the time.
