Thu 13 Dec 19.00
Experience the warm breeze of summer on a chilly December evening when you attend Improbable's annual mentoring fete. An opportunity to meet a whole host of fantastic theatre companies who will act as your ‘mentors’ for the evening, with their collective experience spanning producing, theatre making, directing and running a building. Come and share in the wealth of diverse experiences, speak to those who have been there, done that, probably got it wrong along the way, but often got it right and hopefully come away feeling a little bit wiser.
We propose a theme for the evening, which acts, as more of a starting point for discussion, rather than something that needs to be strictly adhered to. This year’s theme will be:
LEAPING INTO THE UNKNOWN: TAKING THE NEXT STEP AND LEARNING HOW TO BE A LITTLE BIT BRAVER.
No matter what our discipline or job title is, there always comes a time when we need to make that leap into the next stages of our careers. Sometimes it can be difficult to know how to do this, but a little advice can go a long way.
This year we have teamed up with Rich Mix who will be hosting the evening in their fantastic main space. Come and get involved, have some fun with our traditional fete games, sip on some mulled wine, munch on a mince pie and lets help one another get in to the festive spirit. The evening will be set up speed dating style, which will allow you to move from table to table, meeting different ‘mentors’. There will also be an opportunity later in the evening to talk in greater depth to whoever has tickled your fancy.
Mentoring Companies are nonzeroone, Ovalhouse, Unlimited Theatre, Coney, Akademi, Improbable and Independent Commercial Theatre Producer Eleanor Lloyd.
Numbers are limited, so please book early to ensure your place.
Look forward to seeing you there
