/ Mind the Gap

It was fantastic to be in an environment where everyone was there for the same purpose: to talk about, exchange, promote and develop their work, be it from an artist / company or a festival / programmer perspective. The variety of attendees was really fantastic and I had a number of genuinely productive and useful conversations.
