Producers are essential to a thriving arts and cultural scene. They know how to take a creative idea and make it happen or a creative talent and help it flourish. They know everything there is to know about putting on a show or performance from seeking the finance to securing the rights to attracting an audience. Producing is traditionally a job learned on the job. However, this workshop will introduce you to the basics. It will share the skills, knowledge and know how to turn bright ideas into a production or performance, or move a grassroots scene forward to a professional level.
Topics covered include:
- Defining a project
- Bringing form and structure to the idea
- Raising and managing the money
- Managing the production
- Equality, diversity and inclusion
- Basic marketing and PR
- Environmental considerations
- Networks and support
Anyone who undertakes the workshop will be offered a free one to one Producer’s Surgery as a follow up which will focus on your project, creative or professional development. You will also be invited to join a dedicated Aberdeen Producers alumni group.
