2021 Annual Conference

We invite a panel of three fantastic speakers. Michael Rosen, Kadiatu Kanneh- Mason and Professor Angela Pickard to discuss the importance of performance across the three disciplines of music, dance and speech. This session will also include a panel discussion with opportunities for questions to be put to this panel.

Our Member's Forum will discuss the ‘The Festival Movement Post-COVID – securing the future of our movement’. This engaging forum will cover:

  • The return of live festivals – Post-COVID - challenges to running and adjudicating at a live events
  • Are online festivals here to stay? Do online festivals create more inclusive performance opportunities, or do they challenge the survival of the live festivals?
  • Reaching out – how do our festivals make sure that they are inclusive and representative of their local communities
