Digital Farm 2020, was a new initiative for both UK and international producers, developed in response to the cancellation of this year’s Producer Farm. Its aim was to address a need from producers for support and ongoing training throughout their careers as well as space and time to consider their current and future potential.
A joint initiative from Fuel, Bristol Ferment, Coombe Farm Studios, and Dance Umbrella, Digital Farm provided 15 producers with the opportunity to share experiences with their peers and respond to provocations and conversations led by the partners as well as guest speakers. These partners, along with In Between Time, have collaborated for four successful years on Producer Farm.
Each guest speaker shared a thirty-minute reflection on themes including leadership in times of uncertainty and change, community engagement cultural democracy, and sustainability. Highlights from these talks will be made available online throughout July and August for the wider arts community to access.
Digital Farm 2020 talks will be shared as follows:
François Matarasso (Community artist, writer, and researcher) Available from Friday 7 August
Stella Kanu (Executive Director of LIFT) Available from Friday 14 August
