1DegreeEast is a producer-led initiative focused on developing ‘producer hubs’ with key venues on the 1 degree east meridian. These hubs support artists to create ambitious, high quality performing arts in the region.
We aim to build relationships with artists so as to understand their work and offer the most appropriate support. We work alongside our partner venues to understand their programmes and their audiences and we aim to be a bridge between artists and venues.
Between us at 1DegreeEast, we have over 25 year’s experience in producing and programming theatre, dance and outdoor arts at all scales nationally and internationally. Producing is at the heart of what we do.
We offer artists, producers, and programmers the support of experienced producers to create theatre, dance and outdoor arts through:
Mentoring & advice
Practical support to develop projects
1DegreeEast is supported by our regional partners, DanceEast, Ipswich, Quarterhouse, Folkestone and Revoluton Arts, Luton and is funded by Arts Council England. We have offices in Folkestone and Ipswich.
