Independent organisation based in Bristol, fostering cross-cultural exchanges and dialogue in contemporary performing arts. Home of #MigrantDramaturgiesNetwork
New Tides Platform is an independent organisation established in 2015, exploring and encouraging cross-cultural exchanges and dialogue within contemporary performing arts. We aim to map and assess theatrical, literary and cultural crossings in theatre and creative writing through research, public events and outreach programmes.
New Tides Platform wishes to function as an interface between scholarly research and the creative sector. As a collaborative venture we are working together with universities and research centres, theatres and theatre-makers, creative/ art organisations as well as journals and publishers.
As facilitators of cultural projects and initiators of new research, we provide a forum for encounters, debates and interchanges, connecting academic research, contemporary theatre-making and communities of thinkers, makers and spectators.
Working as an outreach platform, we develop local, national and international collaborations and networks that are responsive to social and cultural changes within and outside contemporary theatre practices.
