Together Productions believes that the arts can make a difference: bridging social divides, building community, expanding horizons and opening up new perspectives and relationships. We value artists as cultural leaders, and seek to work with others who aim for the highest artistic outcomes whilst embracing creative collaboration, participation and new voices. We are interested in projects that challenge hierarchy and convention, shed light on the unexplored or overlooked, and create spaces for new conversations and otherwise marginalised voices.
