This Way Up 15 Highlights

To get in the mood for THIS WAY UP 16, take a look at what we got up to last year in this Highlights Video.

THIS WAY UP 15 took place at HOME in Manchester on 2 & 3 December 2015, with a programme that featured over 60 speakers and 20 panels, workshops and labs.

Proceedings kicked off with three speakers who shared their unique perspectives with TWU delegates:

  • Nick North (Director of Audiences, BBC) explored how rapid shifts in delivery are changing the way audiences discover and consume content in Audiences 2.0.
  • Marianne Maxwell (Producer, National Theatre of Scotland) asked what cinemas can gain when they start thinking Without Walls?
  • Anna Higgs (Executive Producer, High-RiseThe Duke of Burgundy) looked at how experiments with day and date releasing can create new opportunities for audiences, filmmakers and cinemas.
  • Writer, broadcaster, critic and arts consultant, Gaylene Gould acted as conference MC.
