Crying Out Loud is excited to be working in partnership with Déda in Derby taking part in the three year pilot Producing Hubs project funded by Arts Council England. Led by Derby Theatre with an exciting consortium of artists-led organisations, Derby County football club, the University of Derby and the local authority, the aim is to genuinely reach out to different areas of the city and to strengthen ways of creating and participating in theatre.
As a Producing Hub, partners will work together to programme work in community settings across the city; produce small scale productions that will tour into these hubs and beyond; produce new mid-scale work and new midscale outdoor work. It will also provide artists with opportunities to work on research and development together within the community.
The Producing Hub Project will further build on the city’s work with, and in, local communities through the This is Derby project.
