Participant presenting their work at Demostage free event at St Anne's House


Thursday, 16 Feb, 6.30pm – 8pm, Free, St Anne’s House

What is Demostage? 

Demostage is an informal, temporary space for new ideas. Open to people who make creative projects of any kind (think theatre, music, games, sound, whatever), the event encourages collaboration, sharing and critical discourse.

Presenters have five minutes to present their idea to the room, followed by five minutes for us all to offer thoughts, feedback and ideas.

Demostage is free to attend. We’ll be running a bar during the event.

Why should I attend? 

For audiences, Demostage is an opportunity to get a unique insight into how new creative ideas grow and to help artists make connections and develop their projects. For artists, Demostage is a lightly-held, fun, and informal space to help you get unstuck, make progress and share your ideas with an audience. 

How can I take part?

All spaces have been filled for this event. Fill out this form and include a short paragraph, video, or audio recording about the idea you wish to present. 

If you’d like to attend Demostage but don’t wish to present and idea, that’s fine too – just book a free ticket at this link
