6 creative ENCATC Breakfasts
Since the start of the pandemic, educators, researchers, cultural managers, practitioners, and policy makers are struggling to work digitally. The ENCATC Breakfasts are our commitment to help our members, our community, and our sector to address the challenges of working in a digital environment with the right and new skills and competences.
Over the course of this 6-part series, we will go through a process to help you envision a post-Covid social media strategy. Using the idea of a digital festival as a starting point, we will build up knowledge and skills to create a meaningful digital event, that doesn’t overwhelm people.
During our Breakfasts we will try and rip up the rule book and start again. We will try and come up with new ideas and split events into Pre-promotion, then Live Broadcasting, and finally imagining what kind of long-term relationship we want with our audience. In our final session we will look at the potential of VR and AR for future events.
This special series will be led by Christopher Hogg, a playwright who uses the the medium of smartphones and technology to make sure his work gets to the widest audience possible. In 2018 he won best best BBC audio drama podcast for Rathband. This year he released Cassie & Corey - A musical about Eating Disorders, that is going to be used in schools. To balance the precariousness of playwriting, Christopher is a lecturer in Creative and Social Media at Royal Holloway.
