More Information on The Bare Project. The Place Between Arts and Activism: A Conversation
This workshop will address some difficult questions around how we value political art, and why we make it. The workshop will bring together activists, artists, funders and academics for a couple of hours of play, conversation and constructive disagreements about the occasionally tricky place between art and activism.
Speakers include: award-winning playwright and activist April de Angelis; Lecturer in Media and Communication at the University of Leeds Dr Sarah Weston and theatre maker, arts consultant and lecturer Tim Wheeler.
The Bare Project in collaboration with the School of Media & Communication (University of Leeds), in association with Leeds Playhouse.

Parent & Baby Performance
A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
