Who can be a performer in an oral performance?
Anyone who has something to say and a desire or willingness to say it publicly; someone who:
- is keen to change the way we think about a particular topic;
- has a desire to be heard and believes in themselves;
- knows their topic intimately and can explore ideas creatively;
- is willing to challenge boundaries;
- is willing to share their surplus wealth (knowledge) in excess of their essential need;
- is light on their feet intellectually (what you do with what you know);
- has a specific audience or knowledge of an audience for their message;
- understands that creating an oral performance can be challenging, both emotionally and intellectually; and
- understands the benefits of working collaboratively.
