Often misunderstood but absolutely essential: what makes a great producer?
“Creative cat-herding with pathological positivity”, according to Sarah Ellis (RSC).
In the arts, in broadcast, in digital – and any other creative industry you care to imagine – producers will be dragging projects off the page and into reality. They are everywhere: the glue, the guide, the lightning rod and the cattle prod.
Artful Spark #07 will celebrate the producers who defy categorisation, revealing the tools, techniques and mistakes made in cross-artform production. We’ll explore the experience of self-producing, how producers reflect the cultural values of the institutions they work for, and what professional development looks like in a rapidly changing landscape.
The evening will also be packed with demos that exemplify boundary defying-work.
