Creative Producers Development Programme

Just to say that I am delighted to have been selected as part of this delegation and will ensure that posts and updates and tweets will be occuring in due course…


iShed and Arts Council England are pleased to announced participants of their Creative Producers Development Programme, which includes a trip to SXSW 2011 and a summer school at the Pervasive Media Studio.

The programme brings together producers working across art-forms with a thirst to expand their network and produce cutting-edge digital projects. The aim will be to explore new opportunities, view work, spot emerging digital trends and create a network that will deliver value for years to come.

The participants are:

Laura Sillars, Site Gallery
Chris Horkan, Oh Productions
Julianne Pierce, Blast Theory
Urmala Jassal, SAMPAD
Beckie Darlington, Haus Projects
Matt Davenport, Broadway
Mat Trivett, Trampoline: Agency for Art and Media and LAB
Tanuja Amarsuriya, Theatre Bristol and Inbetween Time
Rachel Coldicutt, Royal Opera House
Marcus Romer,  Pilot Theatre
Isabelle Croissant, Cornerhouse

Participants will first visit SXSW in Texas, US in March 2011. SXSW is one of the leading music, film and interactive festivals in the world, combining showcasing, networking and conferencing in each of these creative fields.  It is a forum for learning  and a global networking opportunity, with a mixture of intellectual content, business exchange and creative showcasing.

The delegation will build upon the Umbrella Group delegations to SXSW in 2009 and 2010 run by iShed and Germination.

In June 2011 the group will participate in an intensive five day lab at the Pervasive Media Studio, produced in partnership with the University of the West of England??s Digital Cultures Research Centre. Facilitated by established practitioners from cutting-edge research and practice, the summer school will blend personal and project development, and cover different aspects of creative technology production.

All of the producers will be documenting their experiences online and an iShed Micro site will go live in the near future.  The twitter list for the delegation (in construction too) is here.
