Stellar Network are organising an event for the London Games Festival Fringe that will give you the opportunity to hook up with a huge diversity of creative people, gain inspiration, drum-up support and come away with numbers and the seed of future collaborations. This is an event for people who think they hate networking- we like to think of it as finding creative alchemy.
If you've the seed of an idea, project or need, take the platform to tell the group all about it. Announce your project idea and ask for feedback; find a game designer for your next interactive theatre production; find a film-maker for your next installation. You could instigate a skill-swap by telling people what you do best and what skill you need to tap into. Or if you are there to fertilise or leech, keep your ears peeled for yourself, your friends and colleagues - we think the best networking is done by linking other people. If you have a recommendation, idea or contact for the person in need, stick your hand up and let them know.
Hand holding and crowd control to be performed by Kate Hargreaves of Gideon Reeling. Gideon Reeling make bespoke interactive theatrical experiences, recently completing a 6th month residency at the Red Death Lates for Punchdrunk and BAC's Masque of the Red Death as well as Games for the Hide and Seek Festival, Soho Project and the BFI.
We at Stellar Network are very excited about this event, and are looking for the widest representation from the theatre, gaming, film and tv communites - and all and any other kinds of creative professionals welcome too. We need designers, producers, directors, technicians, actors and writers. We'd also like to see composers, choreographers, video artists - you get the idea.
If you plan to take a shot at the microphone email us at [email protected], letting us know what it'll be about.
