a collection of people talking at Pitch!

Last week, Sync South East delivered Pitch! at the Stables in Milton Keynes - an amazing smorgasbord of talent and activity - with over 100 people watching, showing, sharing and interacting.

Don't just take my word for it - here is a quick snap shot of some of the feedback we have had in so far:

Inspired! I really enjoyed yesterday's event and had some wonderful and creative conversations with artists and audiences. It was fantastic to see performance, paintings, films and also works in progress - it's not often you get a chance to see painters painting. (audience member)

The Stables theatre screening was great and the responses to my film was overwhelmingly excellent; I have made good funding contacts but most of all I saw heart shattering art.* (participant)

I just wanted to say thanks for such a spectacular day. It was ambitious but that ambition was well founded and I think everyone really stepped up to the mark. All the feedback I heard was so positive... (audience member)

I loved the atmosphere and environment that you've created. There was an incredible spirit of openness, warmth and trust - I felt it the moment I arrived and it continued with the presentations. Its given me a spirit and spring in my step for the rest of the week. (audience member)

I think this mainstream 'ideal' that people so often want to penetrate have a hell of a lot to learn from programmes like syncsouth east in how they work with talent, how they support and promote talent and enable a space where all contributions are valued and that any audience member can be themselves and therefore be open to connect with the work. (audience member)

We are looking at putting a resource together based on the day for people who couldn't make it, so do get in touch if you would like to get on the list for that (email joverrent@adainc.org)
