Go & See
A cornerstone of Creu Cymru’s work is the Go & See scheme, a targeted programme of visits to performances, festivals and conferences.
This research informs the programmes of Creu Cymru members, impacting on the productions and performances they present to their audiences – as well as providing valuable professional development opportunities for theatre staff.
Producers and practitioners are also invited to apply for the scheme – often playing an important part of ‘curated’ group visits, as part of Creu Cymru’s drive to develop cross-sector dialogue and collaboration.
Take-up for research visits is strong, and growing year-on-year. 2012-13 activity included:
- 57 representatives from 20 members and 18 affiliated organisations to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
- 55 representatives to 16 other national and international festivals/symposia – including CINARS in Montreal, WOMEX in Thessaloniki, Imaginate in Edinburgh and Showcase Scotland in Glasgow
- 70 visits to 49 individual performances in the UK
