About the Event

Ethical Ambition Workshop Series

“You’ll read a lot of copy this year talking about last year. New problems appeared. Persistent problems were underlined. The theatre industry, not unlike most, faced unimagined predicaments and difficult reckonings. Artists and audiences saw some arts organisations show themselves unable (or unwilling) to adapt. You know this. And maybe the drive to ‘return to normal’ raises your eyebrow too. What is ‘normal’ and is it fixed? For this year’s Check In Festival, we wanted to think about some of the ‘lessons’ of the pandemic, but with eyes fixed on the future. Must we return to a programme of staid, overdone ticket-sellers? How do you hold ethics and morals central with profit-making a concern at a time of increased financial burden? This workshop series will embolden you not only to dream up new normals, but also to hold conviction and care while making them real. Care for each other, ourselves, our planet, and more. Let’s think about it. How do we have Ethical Ambition in 2021 and beyond?”

– Will Amott (Guest Workshop Programmer)
