We believe that the arts and music can inspire positive social change:
• We design collaborative creative projects.
• We bring artists, organisations and audiences together in new combinations to produce ground-breaking work.
• Our vision is a more connected, cohesive society where individuals from across the social spectrum are celebrated for their differences as well as their similarities.
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.
