Festival Director Kate Craddock invites you to join a conversation about possibilities for working internationally as an artist.

Over the last few years, GIFT has been exploring different models for international working, which will offer a starting point for the group discussion.  Kate will be joined online as part of this event by individual artists whose processes for creation involve working in contexts beyond the UK, to share how they have built relationships internationally to support the development of their own individual practice - and to give some insight into the artistic projects that they are in the process of creating.


Participant info

Participants are invited to bring along a packed lunch, be ready to ask questions and to share experiences of their own. This event is open to anyone who is interested, but will be of particular interest to artists and producers working in live performance. If you would like to attend the online discussion aspect of this event only, please email

About Artists
