This workshop is the first in a series of Producers Toolkit Workshops at HOME, in partnership with Farnham Maltings.
In this introduction to producing, Laura Woodward will explore what exactly a producers role is and how good producing can be the deciding factor on whether a creative project lives or dies. You’ll start by looking more generally at the foundations of producing for any creative project. This covers strategic thinking, setting aims and ambitions, finding a project’s USP, audience directed partnerships, timelines and budgets.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions, share experiences and gain practical tips. The session is open to producers at all levels whether you’re setting out producing your own work, trying to build a career as a producer or want to meet others already producing, they’ll be something to gain or add to your producers toolkit.
Laura Woodward is a Producer at Farnham Maltings where she is the lead producer for Victoria Melody, Bucketclub and Akin Theatre and supports Farnham Maltings own produced work which tours nationally. She is also the lead programmer for theatre and family work for the building and community settings. Laura has over 10 years’ experience of developing and touring new contemporary theatre both in the UK and internationally, and has worked with organisations including artsdepot and Nottingham Playhouse.
