Survival and Growth: a conversation for Bradford’s performance and events sector

On 25 June more than 40 people from Bradford’s performance and events sector came together online for a conversation about ways that we can support each other in these unprecedented times and to collectively imagine what the future could and should look like.

Bradford Producing Hub asked people to provide their thoughts in advance around the biggest challenge they are currently facing and the opportunities that this crisis presents to do things differently. We also arranged independent facilitation to help structure the conversation and make sure everyone had chance for their voice to be heard.

This was a fascinating conversation that raised many important questions about how we want things to be for our sector post Covid-19 and the difference people want to see. It was also an incredible reminder of the sense of collaboration and care for each other that defines Bradford’s creative sector.

The notes from the meeting, along with a transcript from the text chat, are available to download here.

We are incredibly hopeful that this will be the start of a series of conversations and action from Bradford’s creatives to build on the passion and momentum started here. If you want to be part of future discussions and what comes next email us at
