The Research Team is presenting a panel discussion entitled "Imagine what this would have been like if it wasn't any good: the TheatreSpace Project" at the conference on the 16 July at 11am. This panel presentation will focus on the many ‘conversations’ that have shaped this project since its inception through to the first phase of data collection in 2008/9. Conversations about methodology, research questions and design (between a team of nine researchers), brokering conversations with 13 theatre industry partners and with young people, have impacted on the management and continuing refinement and evolution of this project. In a dialogue between the research team and the audience this presentation will focus on the challenges of working on research of this scale in diverse sites with young people and theatre companies.
