Creating It, Owning It, Doing It
Are you a young deviser or a young devising company? Are you stuck? Wrestling with stuff in your process?
Then why not book a free appointment with the Idiot Doctor and chat your ideas through (confidentially of course). Paul Hunter, Artistic Director of Told by an Idiot will talk through your creative project with you, act as a sounding board for ideas and offer advice and guidance. The surgery will take place once a month at the Idiot office in RADA Studios, Chenies St, central London.
Surgery hours: 26th June, 10am -12pm
To be considered for an appointment, email Amanda Castro with your CV and an outline of your project which you would like to discuss with Paul.
