bOing! International Family Festival present Child’s Play?

Discussing performance for early years audiences.

You and your family are invited to join our bOing! debate.  We have a panel of experts and practitioners who will lead a discussion on:

  • What needs to be considered when making performances for early years?
  • What needs to change to offer more and better work for young children and their families?
  • Are there some countries/cultures better at this than we are and if so, why?

The panel will be chaired by Liz Moran (Director of Arts and Culture, University of Kent) who will be joined by Tim Webb (Oily Cart), Andy Manley (award-winning theatre director and artist), Erika Nurmsoo (Child Psychology Dept, University of Kent), Paulo Lameiro (founder and Artistic Director of Musicalmente), Shona Reppe (theatre maker/artist), and Rhona Matheson (Chief Executive, Starcatchers).
