Equity is in Edinburgh from Aug 24 - 29...The Facebook group
The most important session for practitioners to influence their sector is on 27/08/09 Working in Independent Theatre – the Essentials - 1400-1600 Free (ticketed) at Festival Theatre, 13-19 Nicholson Street (venue 244).
Sadly it will be the least well attended. Social Media has no visibility in the ITC (Independent Theatre Council) contract or the Fringe contract at present I would like to see that change.
- Enabling audiences to share and promote our productions with targeted material.
- Payments for Live Streamed performances.
- Guidelines to protect copyright using more flexible CC creative commons licenses
- Guidelines for online conduct within social media for company members
Please find time to fit this one in your diary. You do not have to be an equity member or working or ever worked on an ITC contract. Come and share your concerns, experiences and needs for a theatre contract for digital age.
I will be there.
