Interchange: Just Ask… A Festival Breakfast

Presented as part of Bristol Festival of Puppetry.

Diverse City Joint Artistic Director Jamie Beddard and Extraordinary Bodies Artist David Ellington, kick off Interchange by calling time on awkwardness around disability and difference. This provocation will help open up debate and activate everyone with new-found confidence.

Interchange 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?

Interchange is a collaboration between Bristol Festival of Puppetry, Doing Things Differently (Diverse City & Bristol City Council), Guerilla Dance ProjectBlind Summit, Openup Music and Hijinx.
