This week we have a panel joining us to open up our thinking and start a dialogue about media and press.
We look forward to welcoming:
– Catrin Pascoe, editor, Western Mail
– Guy Odonnell, co-ordinator, http://getthechance.wales/
– Gareth Jones, Welsh ICE/ The CDF
Each will talk for a few minutes about their perspectives and experience, and then we will open out to the whole group for questions and discussion. It promises to be an interesting session as part of our current six week block about audiences and publics.
Pls join us, we are open to all. Wed 8.30-9.30am sharp, Chapter theatre foyer (first floor). The building will be open from 8.15am. Tea and coffee will be provided and the cafe will be open.
The purpose of What Next?
Broad aim: to find new ways of engaging with our audience and visitors: the ever-expanding millions who value and take part in the cultural work that happens day-in, day-out up and down this country.
Guiding star: to encourage the people of this country, as individuals and as communities, to see connections between the many different ways art and culture affect and enhance our lives; to urge everyone to register their endorsement of – and pleasure in – their art and culture, especially where these are under threat.
