Dialogue at IDIERI 9: Tyranny of Distance

We're excited to announce that this year Dialogue is collaborating with IDIERI to document the activities during the week-long event in Auckland.

Dialogue – The Community Performance Network is a non-profit knowledge sharing network specialising in supporting practitioners to generate and use evidence in order to boost and sustain their work.

This year, we’re collaborating with IDIERI to document the activities during the event – filming videos, taking photographs, writing articles, recording audio, and conducting interviews.

We’re aiming to attend as many activities as possible so you’ll be seeing Dialogue team members in our blue polo shirts around all the venues. The resources which we create will be uploaded onto our online public platform and shared with IDIERI attendees, Dialogue network members, and the general public.

If you would like more information on how the material will be used, have any other questions, or wish to opt your event out of the project please speak to a member of the team or email us on: idieri@performingdialogue.com

Finally, we’re always more than happy to discuss working with you to support your documentation and evidence initiatives (wherever you are in the world) – so if you’re interested in learning more about partnering with us in the future, please email us on: partners@performingdialogue.com

Have a great IDIERI from all of us at Dialogue!
