A Festival Breakfast

 is our new space for dialogue about puppetry and diversity and will inform all we do in the future. Interchange will focus on, and question how effectively our ancient craft reflects the diversity of our world. Puppetry has the power to charm, disturb and transform lives, so how do we ensure the widest possible participation and access as audience members or practitioners?

We are working with partners from Diverse City, Doing Things DifferentlyGuerilla Dance ProjectBlind Summit, Openup Music and Hijinx.

Diverse City Joint Artistic Director Jamie Beddard kicks off Interchange by poking and provoking. Calling time on awkwardness around disability and difference, this session will help open up debate and activate everyone with new-found confidence.

This is an accessible event and has little or no spoken word. This is part of Bristol Festival of Puppetry’s new programme to interrogate and develop the diversity agenda for puppetry. Delivered in association with Diverse City and Doing Things Differently, and with support from leading Deaf artist David Ellington and Bristol Physical Access Chain, Interchange is a strand of action-learning embedded at the heart of BFP17, which asks:
What is the unique role that puppetry can play in addressing the diversity agenda?
