Members testimonials for ICWP
Dr. Rachana Pandey from India
Department of English, Vasanta College for Women, Uttar Pradesh, India.
"They (ICWP) helped me to understand British theatre and establish a network among theatre practitioners. The best thing about the ICWP network is that they respond immediately and are friendly by nature. ICWP builds confidence in you especially when you are a beginner in the field of theatre...
Also, the network has an informal and a very nice culture of introducing a new member in the group which I have never seen before. All the members share a unique bond with each other across the socio-cultural and geographical borders "
Dr. Jenni Munday from Australia
Faculty of Arts and Education, Charles Sturt University, Albury, Australia.
For over twenty years, I have been a member of ICWP and have interacted with a large diverse community of supportive women. Several years ago, I lived in Canada for 18 months and I was able to meet fellow members “in the flesh” including attending one of the famous Ohio retreats. I met Paddy Gillard-Bentley, from Flush Inc Productions, Toronto, and we still stay in touch to this day, hoping to work together again in the future. The very active Listserv and the interesting blog postings keep my grey cells growing.
