We are looking for individuals to take part in our focus groups which will support the development of Lucy Suggate's new work, Ways of Seeing, Ways of Being.

Dance4, Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, Nottingham Castle Trust and dance artist Lucy Suggate are looking for individuals to contribute towards the development of an exciting project taking place at Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery 23 – 24 September 2017.

Ways of Seeing, Ways of Being is a weekend of activities to develop the visitors’ experience of the 19th century picture gallery at Nottingham Castle, using movement to provide a new context for viewing and engaging with the art collection.

The Focus groups are an integral part of the process for artist Lucy Suggate, the sessions will inform how she approaches the project, allowing those involved to express their views and opinions whilst also getting a unique experience in testing out new movement ideas. We are looking for a wide range of individuals from the Nottinghamshire area, all we ask is that you come with an interest and enthusiasm to participate.

Focus group sessions will include:

·      Discussions around why we attend / visit certain places and not others

·      Exploring themes from the new work Ways of Seeing, Ways of Being

·      Testing out of choreographic ideas and tasks

·      An invite to the private viewing of Ways of Seeing, Ways of Being (Friday 22 September 2017)
