Feedback from TheatreNI participants at Interchange:

‘The weekend was fantastic. Was very inspiring hearing and learning from other people who worked in the field. It’s difficult to pick out a highlight of the weekend as I found that each of the workshops provided me with invaluable learning and was very applicable to all that I am doing.’

‘Being awarded the bursary was brilliant as i wouldn’t have been able to afford to go to the
interchange without it. I have been able to use the ideas given from the participants into the
different fields that I work with.’
