Dougal Perman will chair a panel of cultural content pioneers who have utilised remote participation to engage audiences who would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience their work. Panellists will include producers from UK National Theatre’s NT Live, London Symphony Orchestra and the National Piping Centre.
