Third Angel presents

Inspiration Exchange

Where do ideas come from? And more importantly, which ones stick around and turn into something? What are the ideas, objects, phrases, images, texts or thoughts that have inspired you in the past or continue to inspire you?


More about Inspiration Exchange on the blog:

The Story of the Day
Generating Conversation

Over the duration of the Exchange, we swap a personal catalogue of inspiration for an eclectic, multi-contributor library of ideas, incidents and events. Inspiration Exchange shifts in duration and format, popping up at festivals and conferences, in cafes, foyers and little side rooms in theatres, museums, galleries…anywhere there are people and ideas.

Performed at a table, with about 6 or 8 audience chairs around it. The conversational part of the performance – for one or more audience members at a time - lasts up to 7 hours, with a ‘summing up’ story-telling performance for the last 15-20 minutes.

  • Devised and presented by Alexander Kelly.

If you would like us to bring an Inspiration Exchange to your event, then please get in touch.
