What Did You Dislike About The Event?
- Little bit hot
- Be good to have more ‘diverse’ speakers when covering equality in the arts
- The regional middle section didn’t work for me
- Lack of breaks – lack of clarity beforehand e.g lunch
- Too much being talked at. Longer on open forum would have been great
- Felt like it was lots of individual histories with little chance for discussion/overlap.
- Key players not here – TRB, Council, Pound Arts
- Quite a long day of talks, perhaps a few more discussion points
- Maybe the choice of venue was a little limited
- It was a bit too hot for me
- Ignoring maintaining a career in the arts as a performer/musician/dancer. Think layers
- Needs to be more linked to the overall theme, with the speakers moving beyond who you are and what you do
- A couple of speakers – hard to follow their presentations (speaking too quickly). Would have liked to see an acting performance
- Having to sit for so long on a hard seat
- The chairs and the heat
- Thank you for an excellent day
- Another inspirational forum from Theatre Bath. New knowledge and connections made
- Real formentation will come from today
- Go Theatre Bath! Thanks for bringing us all together
- Venue great (but too hot). Well done Theatre Bath, thank you
- And quote on poster from ‘WestEndProducer’: I am excited by a local regional scene, not apsiring to be London.
- Great venue, great company!
- Thank you Theatre Bath
- Well done!
- Really loved what you are doing. Artists need you. Keep it up!
- Thank you for your on-going commitment to make us connect, think, challenge and remember why we do what we do!
- Speakers saying less words, more work on pace of presentation. Take a leaf out of TED talks maybe
- Delegate list would be great so follow up contact can be made
- We need a good level of candidness Andy Burden was the nearest on this today
- More breakout sessions
- Collaboration inspires optimism. Well done
- Long may you run!
- Needs following up! How do we get all arts sectors to work together? Not jut performing arts
