For the Curiously Minded

Sold out

Following the success of last year’s Hammersmith and Fulham ArtsFest Finale, hosts Anjan Saha and Nina Joshi Ramsey return with a rare opportunity to be up close and personal with a stellar array of guests across disciplines.

Listen in as they explore mind-altering blind spots, challenges, and hopes around access to being in the Arts, as faced by Artists – perspectives range across finances, identity, location, disability, age, class, gender, art form, subject matter, culture, society, etc. Ask questions, share your thoughts, and have some ‘Aha’ moments

The evening will be interspersed with live music, showcase performances and comedy, for a winning Festival Finale! Expect, at times, irreverent, humorous and philosophical searches for deeper and maybe brutal truths, and possibly even solutions to unseen challenges.

This event continues a series of hothouse thinking towards better community cohesion. Join us at the Bush Theatre Garden before and after the event, to engage with the activities and discussion topics and meet people from across the H&F Arts Festival.

Work Experience Diary | Shania “the best place for anyone creative”

Our work experience student Sania Ramnarine tells us about her time at the Bush Theatre. That first day, I just remember being incredibly uncertain of myself. Completely unsure that I would even like it, I’m more of a performer myself, and in the weeks running up to my placement, I was plagued with this unyielding thought…

Work Experience Diary | James “Do yourself a favour, and go to the Bush”

Our work experience student James Murtagh tells us about his time at the Bush Theatre. What. A. Place. Spending a week here has been both fascinating, hugely informative and, importantly, great fun! Upon my arrival on Monday morning I was greeted by friendly smiles and the welcoming community atmosphere of the Bush. Holly, the Community Producer,…
