The Joyous Thing #2

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 how we continue to reach audiences. How could online platforms and new thought help break old barriers? How does the landscape of online production intersect with pressing conversations around diversity, inclusion, and equality within our scene and beyond?

Join us for a weekend of commissioned performances from artists and network members from across the UK. Talks and Q&A’s. Hang-out sessions where you can meet like minds. Guest mixes and DJ Sets. A chance to cut loose at virtual after parties… plus a good old pub quiz to round things off.

This is a free event made possible with support from Arts Council England.
