One to Ones

Our one-to-one sessions are a chance to have a chat with people working in the industry who you might have burning questions for or might have just always wanted a brew with. Each season we bring in experts from different specialisms to share their wisdom. These are advice sessions and a chance to pick the brains of arts professionals in a safe space.
