THE JOYOUS THING 2 (online)
The Joyous Thing is a live gig and a chance to talk. A place to meet with fellow adventurers around the country who live, work, and play across myriad forms of new music, art, and performance. In turbulent times there is an urgent need to work as allies, to face challenges in supportive, collaborative, and creative ways. As we continue to be physically separated by the ongoing covid crisis, The Joyous Thing is a chance to come together online, to explore new connections and share new methods of working, producing and creating.
In this edition, the focus is on ways we can continue to reach audiences, considering how online platforms and new thought can help break old barriers, during times of covid and beyond. The programme also intends to instigate pressing conversations around diversity, inclusion and equality within the scene.
Join us for a weekend of commissioned performances from artists and network members from across the UK, talks and Q&A’s with folks from across the scene, hang-out sessions where you can meet like-minds, listen to guest mixes and DJ Sets, cut loose at virtual after-parties, end even join a good old pub quiz to round things off.
