European Cultural Parliament

I was fortunate to attend the European Cultural Parliament in Prinstina, Kosova from 3rd -6th October 2014.  The meeting adopted two resolutions passed –  one on issues specifically on the Ukrainian situation, and one on issues on culture across Europe.

Critical Response Process

Christine Hamilton trained in Critical Response Process (CRP) with Liz Lerman.  CRP is a four stage process which invites feedback from an audience to an arts presentation.  It works because it allows the artist to hear critical responses to the work in a way which is helpful and supportive.  It works well as part of a post -show discussion or as a feedback session for work-in-progress with an invited group of other artists.  Christine has delivered CRP sessions in theatre and puppetry – including sessions with children.  While her main interest is in theatre, she is happy to work in all artforms.   As a guideline, the fee for running a session is £150 for half day plus expenses.  If you are interested in inviting Christine along to run a session, contact her on christinehamiltonconsulting@gmail.com
