Just over a week ago saw the first Twespians event of 2012, with Sven Ruggenberg presenting his findings from a 6 month study of social media and london theatre (his full report is here). We hosted the event in partnership with Society of London Theatre, and had about 70 people come down to hear Sven’s findings. From the sound of Twitter and the general murmurings from the room, there were people who agreed and disagreed with Sven’s findings (he did promise that he would split the room), with the after-talk discussion getting quite interesting as a result.
There have been a few writeups from the event including:
- Chris Unitt’s wrapup of the event, with a bit of commentary on the side, as well as his follow up post on the Les Mis video, measurement and marketing.
- The Dog What Blogs mentioned us in his post. Funnily I didn’t see any Staffys in the room!
- Twespians co-founder Laura pulled together the best of the Twitters in her Storify of the event.
- And finally, Sven posted his Prezi presentation from the day, complete with videos, links and cats.
Next month sees a few outings, with Soho Theatre and Richmond Theatre offering Twespians tickets to What I Heard About the World and The King’s Speech. As I’m writing this there’s still 1 ticket left for Soho’s What I Heard about the World, but the waiting list for The King’s Speech is growing day by day. Jump on to Meetup to put your name down for either quickly! A big thank you to both Amy from Soho and Michaela from Richmond for sorting those out for us.
Keep an eye on the site for the results of the Twespians Survey, the next big Twespians event and some exciting fringe collaborations happening throughout the next few months. If you haven’t registered on Meetup, then make sure you do to snap up your place as soon as events are announced.
