Getting Through The Cracks

In summer 2020, we at Theatre Alibi were set to host the Symposium ‘School Children As Theatre Audiences’ in partnership with Exeter University and ASSITEJ UK. Our plans had to change and so did yours. As we peered through the cracks amidst this pandemic, we asked ourselves what this meant for organisations producing work for young audiences throughout the UK and internationally.

So, every Thursday over 3 weeks (19th Nov, 26th Nov, 3rd Dec) at 13:00 (GMT)  we held ‘Getting Through The Cracks’ – free, live, and uplifting conversations that offered guidance on the making of work for children in the difficult climate the pandemic has brought with it.

These conversations were held by an unmissable list of panellists; renowned industry professionals to inspire our sector during these unprecedented times.

Watch the recording of each week’s conversation below.
