Event Description

If you are working in the arts and making things happen (whatever your job title), the Producers' Place network and its events will be of interest to you...

What are producers doing in relation to creating a sense of place through cultural activity? How is the producer working with artists where art, regeneration and the environment interact? How are producers sparking dialogue across communities and igniting new strategies for energising struggling urban areas where Mary Portas’ magic wand has failed to spark transformation?

The next Producers’ Place session will take place on Monday 30 June in Swansea at Volcano’s 229 High Street venue from 7pm-9pm

At this session, Producers’ Place will be hosting a discussion between Seth Honnor ( and Paul Davies ( where they will talk about how the multi-faceted role of the producer can shade into that of a cultural activist, future thinker and radical entrepreneur.

Seth describes himself as liking “to play a lot and make stuff” and as “being one, several or all of the following: an artist, designer, choreographer (not a real one), theatre maker, sportsman (#captseth), teacher, musician, facilitator, consultant, husband, dad.” He is the Artistic Director of Kaleider based in Exeter and Director of online performance network albow. He is an Honorary Fellow at University of Exeter and on the Steering Board for the AHRC funded REACT Hub which is a collaboration between Universities of Cardiff, Bristol, West of England, Bath, Exeter and Watershed. He was the founding Director of Theatre Bristol stepping down after 6 years in April 2010 to make work as an artist again.

Paul is a writer, performer, deviser and director who holds a doctorate in Politics and a black belt in karate. He is, with Fern Smith, one of the founder members of Volcano and is now its Artistic Director. He has performed in many Volcano shows, written three plays for the company and directed or devised a number of others. He has directed work in Montreal and Croatia and taught in various academies around the world.

Producers’ Place is a new network for producers in Wales. The network aims to strengthen links between people who self-identify as producers in the arts (whether they have that job title or not) – to foster dialogue, share ideas and offer practical support to participants.
