TaPRA Conference: 9th-11th September 2010, Cardiff School of Creative & Cultural Industries

Cardiff was the venue for this year’s TaPRA (Theatre and Performance Research Association) conference. The conference was held at the ATRiuM, the building for the Cardiff School of Creative & Cultural Industries of the University of Glamorgan.  This is an impressive, modern building whose most distinguishing feature is – unsurprisingly - its vast atrium, which forms its main entrance hall.

Having been a student in Cardiff some years ago, I was expecting everything to be familiar, so it was quite a shock when I arrived at Cardiff Central and didn’t recognise anything! The city has been transformed since I was last there, with an array of new architecture, sculpture, restaurants and shops, as Cardiff takes its place as a buzzing, modern European capital city.

This was my first time at TaPRA, and I was really pleased to be there. It was great to meet so many of you there, some of you whom I had met before, others who were completely new contacts, and in particular, it was great finally to meet in person those of you whom I have enjoyed a long email and telephone correspondence but never before met face to face!  I enjoyed speaking to many of you about new and existing projects and ideas, and we look forward to receiving your submissions. TaPRA was a great conference to be part of, and I look forward to next year!
