Three To See 2012: Useful talks

By | Published on Thursday 26 July 2012

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends three useful talks taking place at Fringe Central this year.

How To Do A Show At The Fringe
If this is your first time at the Fringe, and you are thinking “next year I think I might like to bring a show myself”, go to this and find out exactly why you shouldn’t. No, only joking. But the fact is, it’s difficult, even if there are plenty of people around here making it look fairly easy. If you are planning to take the plunge, attending this event should definitely be on your list of things to do.

CMU: Making It In Music
I must plead guilty to being slightly biased in recommending this, and that’s because CMU is ThreeWeeks sister publication. But I wouldn’t be the first person to say that Team CMU are brilliant at telling people stuff about the music industry. Their wealth of knowledge is extraordinary, and if you are trying to make it in music, then this is an absolute must. CMU will also be dishing out advice to music types at the StageTime conference the following weekend (more on that at www.stagetimeconf.com).

The Making Of NVA’s Speed Of Light
NVA’s Speed Of Light is a “fusion of public art and sporting endeavour” set to be staged on Arthur’s Seat this summer. Each night, a visual display will be created as hundreds of runners ascend the peak wearing specially designed light suits. Are you fascinated by this project, desperate to know what has gone into the making of it? I think I am, frankly. And if you are too, then this may just be the talk you need to attend.
