This event was originally scheduled for 21 Jun 2022 but has been rescheduled due to the rail strikes.
STAMP Connects breaks down barriers between independent artists and the organisations who exist to support them. As in previous years, it will feature panel discussions with a variety of programming, producing and commissioning theatres. At our ‘marketplace’, ticket holders can also meet, chat and build relationships with up to 50 (2021 figure) London-based arts organisations, including the Young Vic, BAC, Pleasance, and VAULT Festival.
STAMP Connects is an opportunity to tell venues and organisations what you think and what you need – and to gain an understanding of how those organisations and venues can support you and your work.
We will be creating Facebook events for the talks which will be available to attendees to watch as livestreams. Click the hyperlinks in the events below to tune in!
