On Sunday December 7th 2008, in association with Graeae and the Arcola, writernet hosted It Isn't Fixed, a day of visioning; of ideas and discourse around playwrights and playwriting: of future challenges and possibilities.
writernet is winding up after 10 years, with another 13 years backstory before that as New Playwrights Trust. We wanted to bring playwrights together for a day to inspire, affect and challenge current thinking and practice as a spur to better quality work generated in a broader set of contexts.
The day included artists in conversation; provocations; Open Space and a party.
We invited a number of playwrights to speak.
Invitees and speakers included:
Gabriel Gbadamosi, Bonnie Greer, Roy Williams, Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti, Dipo Agboluaje, Kaite O’Reilly, Jenny Sealey, Alex Bulmer, Mike Kenney, Roney Fraser Munro, Mehmet Ergun, Fin Kennedy, Peter Arnott, Simon Stephens, Sara Clifford, Peter Rumney, Richard Shannon, Christopher Hampton, David Eldridge, Steve Waters, Paul Sirett.
This blog is a virtual space for It Isn't Fixed. It contains documentation and reflection on the day. Please add your comments, thoughts and provocations.
