Welcome to the Inspiration Exchange. This is a simple story-swapping performance. Together we will exchange a personal catalogue of inspirations to create an eclectic, multi-contributor library of ideas, incidents and events.
Take a seat, choose a title card that you like the sound of, and your host, Third Angel Co-Artistic Director Alexander Kelly, will tell you the story behind the title – a story of something – an idea, and object, an event, a person - that has inspired someone. After you’ve heard the story you will be invited to tell a story of your own, to be added to the Exchange.
Drop in to swap a story, or just to listen to other peoples’, or join us for a summing up of all the stories exchanged over the afternoon at the end of the day.
Third Angel’s Inspiration Exchange has been presented across the UK and internationally since 2010, evolving to become a unique collection of curated stories and ideas. Where do ideas come from, it wonders? And more importantly, which ones stay with us? What are the ideas, objects, phrases, images, texts or thoughts that have inspired you in the past or continue to inspire you?
Each time the Exchange shifts in duration and format, popping up at festivals and conferences, in cafes, foyers and little side rooms in theatres, museums, galleries…anywhere there are people and ideas.
Departure Lounge’s intriguing outdoor performance destination for this year will be hosted by S.H.E.D. Presents with the S.H.E.D. (Social Higher Education Depot), an old garden shed placed in the heart of Derbados that will transform into a mobile arts venue to create an alternative site for artistic practice.
