This Way Up 2017 (TAPE)

Neil Dunshire from TAPE Community Music and Film attended the 2017 This Way Up Conference. Here’s more about his experience:

“This Way Up was a really great experience for myself and my organisation. It was a really inspirational 2 days with great speakers and panels. It’s the first time I have attended a This Way Up event and unsure how much I was going to take away from the event.  As it turned out it was hard to know what to choose to go along to once it got started as there was so much that was relevant to our charity. I took pages of notes from some sessions and refer back to them still on a regular basis. The 2 days have influenced change in my organisation from the new business plan to decisions on flooring!  Was really useful to hear the similarities and differences in people’s experiences during and outside of the sessions as well.  I would definitely recommend attending to anyone thinking of going along to the next event.”

Neil’s Top five things he learned:

  1.  A better understanding of the wider cinema community and a knowledge of other working practices.
  2. More confidence in curation decisions.
  3. Accessibility options that can easily be applied to the venue and longer term options.
  4. Contacts and networking opportunities.
  5. Opportunities for archive film.
