Explore connections between performance and the visual arts by joining a week of interactive workshops, creative sessions and talks with staff, students and practitioners from across Royal Holloway, University of London's Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences.
Discover more about how theatre is an exchange between people, art forms and environments that are creative, economic and political. Explore how experiences of exchange inform contemporary debates around curation, immigration, participation and art making. Investigate theatre as place of public endeavour.
Each of our events in the Tate Exchange programme is a Theatre of Exchange – a forum for sharing ideas and encounters.
We kick off the week on Monday 13 February with an afternoon of conversation. Join us at 16.00 to hear what ‘exchange’ means to researchers from Royal Holloway, University of London who work across performance and curation, immigration and community engagement. The discussion will be led by Georgina Guy, Phil Crang, Lynette Goddard, Ruth Hemus and Helen Nicholson.
