Meet Me @ Mahogany: Make It Snappy

Make it Snappy - exploring the process of collaborative composition as creative development for professionals and participants.

Meet Me @Mahogany is Mahogany Opera’s new virtual Open House where we share insights and ideas around what we do and how we do it, connecting people to our creative practice.

Join us on Wednesday 6 October 18:00 – 19:30 (BST) as we explore the process of making a Snappy Opera and other participatory projects that combine devising with structured composition, taking everyone on a creative journey together. The conversation will be guided by Rhian Hutchings with a panel of inspiring practitioners with a wealth of experience in this area:
