Critical Culture Intensive with Jane Howard | Fringe at the Edge of the World

A Three-Day Intensive Critical Writing Course,
with guest Jane Howard.

About this Event

There’s a massive and ever increasing dearth of critical response to performing arts work across the country, in Tasmania, and here in Hobart, but critical response is worth a great deal to artists and audiences alike, providing growth for both, making connections between people and increasing empathy and communication that feeds a strong and exciting future for performing arts companies and indie production. Critical Culture is a time and place to get together and engage in structured critical response, learn about how and why to give and receive feedback with peers, and diversify critical perspectives on performing arts in Hobart.

Critical Culture presents a three-day intensive critical response workshop, facilitated by Jane Howard. This project is supported by Fringe at the Edge of the World, and uses the festival as a hunting ground for budding reviewers who must see a high percentage of shows and meet morning-after writing deadlines across the period of the festival. Included in the fee is the workshop and a full festival pass to Fringe at the Edge of the World.

Come and develop critical and analytical skills in this exclusive hothouse program!

Included in this program:
– Daily critical analysis workshops with Jane Howard from 9.30am – 11.30am;
– Fringe at the Edge of the World Festival Pass;
– Online platform to publish reviews and receive feedback from Jane Howard.
