STAND Foundation webinar on Festivals

Do festivals have a future in contemporary times?

I facilitated a STAND webinar on the future of festivals given the restrictions on these events as a result of the global pandemic.  Hugo Theart (Kuns Onbeperk which hosts the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees), Monica Newton (CEO of the National Arts Festival), Inge Ceustermans (General Director of The Festival Academy based in Brussels) and Eckhard Thiemann, Artistic Director of the Shabbuck Festival in the UK that provides a platform for work from the Arab region, were the panelists in an enriching and insightful conversation.  The recording is available on the Facebook page of the Sustaining Theatre and Dance (STAND) Foundation.
