EPAD Production & Wellbeing Workshops


Edinburgh Performing Arts Development (EPAD) is a capacity-building project, supported by Capital Theatres and the City of Edinburgh Council. We act as a facilitator and connector, enabling Edinburgh's independent performing artists and producers to share in the knowledge, experience and facilities within the city's wider cultural infrastructure.

They will be hosting the following events in March 2019 :

EPAD workshop - 'The Producer Spectrum' | Tuesday 5 March 2019 | 10am to 1pm

An interactive morning workshop with Chris Grady exploring what Chris calls 'the Producer Spectrum.'

This half day session introduces you to the producer spectrum, exploring the many different roles that we may play under the guise of theatre-maker, producer and arts manager. This workshop is designed for producers at all stages in their career, self-producing artists, those who might relish having support from a producer, and those who employ or engage people with the producing skills to make things happen.

How do we better support ourselves and each other? A well-being workshop for Independent Artists | Tuesday 19th March | 10am to 1pm

EPAD, along with independent dance artist and activist Emma Jayne Park will be providing a safe space for discussion about how we manage our mental health and well-being as freelancers in the performing arts.

The session will offer a confidential space to think out loud, discuss, reflect and propose some practical methods of maintaining our well-being.  We will take some time to imagine the ideal circumstances in which we could healthily pursue our practice, including finding ways to ask for what we need to ensure we are sufficiently supported as freelance workers.
