the hub working as producer at Dartington

the hub has recently joined forces with the Arts team at Dartington, and will be working as producer in residence until early 2011. Dartington is a pioneering Devon-based charity which nurtures ideas to address pressing problems and works for the advancement of the arts, sustainability and social justice. Dartington’s arts programmes provides opportunities for people of all ages to participate in and experience the arts, and in addition to a year-round performance programme, many of you will know of its internationally renowned Summer School and the work done by Dartington-based South West Music School, one of the government’s Centres for Advanced Training.

As part of this partnership, hub producer Matthew Linley will be working alongside members of the Arts Team on all aspects of the arts programme, including the forthcoming GeoQuest project and June’s Home festival, which showcases acoustic music from around the world as part of a programme that explores themes of diversity and sustainability. Other members of the hub team, including hub Director Julia Payne, will be involved too, working with Dartington to develop its programme ideas and supporting the development of new partnerships.
