Producer Hub


We have partnered with producer-led arts organisation, 1DegreeEast, to provide a Producer Hub for Bedford.

The Producer Hub provides professional development support for emerging local producers, creatives, programmers and producing artists, especially those from under-represented communities.

1DegreeEast’s team of experienced producers from across the South East region are able to offer mentoring and advice, practical bespoke support, advocacy, feedback and evaluation.¬† The Hub supports individuals across a range of artforms including¬†theatre, dance, visual arts, outdoor arts and everything in between.

The Producer Hub helps people to take their work to the next level through:

  • ‘open door’ & ‘drop-in’ style advice
  • mentoring
  • partnership brokering
  • practical support to develop & fundraising for projects or practical support to develop & resource projects including fundraising
  • continuing professional development (CPD)
  • advocacy & signposting
  • reporting & evaluation support

If you’re interested in accessing the Hub please contact Matthew Jones from 1DegreeEast on
