Tom Harland, Connections Assistant Producer
In case you hadn't noticed
we've refreshed our website. What do you think? It's taken a few meetings and
plenty of time in front of a computer screen but we think it's looking
great. Look here's a sneaky preview:
Since I started on Connections in January I've been tasked with
looking at how we can use technology and the internet to make Connections even
better than it already is.
Now I love the Internet. I mean, the guy who
invented it is a genius for coming up with something that presents me with
videos of animals playing the piano in a few simple clicks... But I wouldn't say
I was an expert.
So I have had to learn things fast. This blog is the
first is a series of new developments we're working on to make Connections a
truly nationwide festival. The Internet can make it easy for someone from
Plymouth to feel like they're involved in the same project as someone from
Inverness (my geography has also improved!), so we want to embrace this as much
as we can.
In the 2013 cycle of Connections we're planning to launch a
brand new community for companies to be part of. It's hoped this will allow
directors to be able to discuss the successes and challenges they're facing, as well as provide an easy way to talk to Partner Theatres and
Connections Directors. Sounds exciting doesn't it?
I'd love to know what
features you'd like to see in a Connections Community site. Whether you're a
Connections veteran or thinking about taking part for the first time what would
you like us to include? Don't be afraid to make your ideas as ambitious as
possible! Although I think Connections: The Online Adventure Game is probably a
bit too far...
Why not leave me a comment below with your ideas? Hey, if
you come up with something we make happen I might even name it after
Have an amazing week.

which case you'll have to change yours to match.
