About the programme

Sharing and developing our distinctive practice with makers, academics and wider networks through exchanges, mentoring, teaching and research.

Through our Exchange programme, we share and develop our distinctive expertise through teaching, mentoring, exchange and research, working in partnership with artists, researchers, drama schools, theatre organisations and the playmaking community.

We regularly share our interactive theatre-making practice through teaching, including courses and workshops at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Arts University Bournemouth, Mountview, Rose Bruford College, and State Institute of Performing Arts in St Petersburg.

We work in partnership with researchers, particularly focusing on developing our practice for sparking change. Current academic partners include UCL and University of Bath Spa. In particular, Coney collaborates with our research associate Dr Astrid Breel, developing better frameworks for designing, evaluating and communicating impact and experience.

Coney also exchanges best practice for playful-change-making with other makers in our Guild of playmakers and our wider network, hosting events for makers to connect and play. We regularly offer workshops especially in interactive practice for makers from under-represented backgrounds and geographies.
