Be Ill-Disciplined at Contact Theatre, Manchester and online, 19 September 2020, free entry - Visit now

An online performance lecture, Be Ill-Disciplined, artist, curator and academic Kai Syng Tan explores how creativity and neurodiversity can drive social change.

Normalhasnt worked, so we need leaders with  atypical  ways of being, thinking, making and organising for our ‘new normal’. Be Ill-disciplined invites you to critically and creatively explore leadership – and to think about yourself as a leader. The lecture will include a chance for discussion and questions. 

With the pandemic, Black Lives Matter and the ongoing crises in climate, health, and technological control, we’ve all been thinking a lot about leadership. Kai will explore what it is that makes a good leader and what could leaders look like in the future.

Be Ill-Disciplined will be live captioned. If you have other access needs, you will be able to tell Contact Theatre this when booking your ticket.
