SCUDD 2021: Beyond Inclusion

The annual SCUDD conference will take place online on Thursday 24th and Friday 25thJune 2021.

The aim of this conference is to bring together artists, academics, and students to think together about the politics of inclusion: its opportunities, challenges, and limits. The conference begins with a sense that institutional work on diversity and inclusion has tended to rearrange the deckchairs but leave the ship intact and on course for disaster. This conference seeks to identify and interrogate inequalities of access, safety, and opportunity across experiences of exclusion. The purpose here is to identify both the specificities of lived experiences of structural and systemic exclusion but also to look across exclusory practices and phenomena to build resistive solidarities. Moreover, the conference will debate what it might mean to shift the conversation away from inclusion, which retains a sense of the centre enveloping the margin, and instead think through the possibilities for our campuses and our industry to become sites of anti-exclusion.  

The Standing Conference of University Drama Departments (SCUDD) represents the interests of Drama, Theatre and Performance in the Higher Education sector in the UK. SCUDD acts as a mediator with bodies such as funding councils, the AHRC and the Arts Councils and is consulted by such organisations when matters of future policy are discussed and decided. Its annual conference concerns topics, issues and debates relevant to those working in drama, theatre and performance in HE. This year’s conference will make space for reflections on working in our field during covid-19 and will continue discussions around advocacy for - and threats to - the discipline. As part of the conference, SCUDD’s AGM will take place. The conference will be free to attend.

Bear Jam Productions proudly presents The Hibernation Film Festival. A festival born out of the recent events that have unfolded across the globe. However, despite being confined to our homes, we are turning this pandemic on its head and want to celebrate filmmakers’ work from around the world. So, we have decided to not only “Do More Video,” but to host our very own online festival.

SHUT DOWN BUT SCRATCHING

As we find ourselves in deeply challenging times, now more than ever emerging artists need support. The doors to the creative industry have been slammed shut and with that, almost all of the opportunities to make new work.
