TheatreSpace was mentioned in a couple of excellent articles at the end of 2010. Check them out. ‘Beyond pantomime‘ by Ray Gill in The Age on 11 December and ’From cradle to stage‘ by Elissa Blake in the Sydney Morning Herald on 20 December.
The TheatreSpace Symposium, our launch event and forum for TheatreSpace participants, key informants, industry partners, teachers, principals, academics, artists, creatives, producers, programmers, marketers, policy-makers and all other interested performing arts/education workers, will be on Monday 14 – Wednesday 16 November 2011 in the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House.
TheatreSpace has been cited in a couple of very interesting articles on young people and the arts in recent months ‘In the theatre of debate’ in The Australian on 30 April and in the Sydney Morning Herald, ‘Children: They’re such a lovely audience’, on 20 March (see attached PDF).
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.
