Alison King, Chief Executive of Turtle Key Arts, presents a free talk on producing or running a production company.
Turtle Key Arts are creative producers. They enable each project to reach its full artistic potential and ensure that participation and education is embedded at the heart of everything they do.
Their work has a UK and international reach through a wide variety of innovative projects with many different collaborators and partners, currently including the companies: Ockham's Razor, RedCape Theatre, Amici Dance Theatre Company, Joli Vyann, Flying Cloud, Slot Machine, Keziah Serreau and SMITH dancetheatre; and recent collaborations with: English Touring Opera, Royal College of Music, The Wigmore Hall, National Portrait Gallery, Opera North, The Royal Court Theatre and Oxford University.
They have played a committed role in advancing participation in the arts by disabled, disadvantaged and socially excluded people, and are widely recognised as a leader in this field, often charting new territories, such as Turtle Song for people with Dementia and The Key Club for young people with Autism.
Turtle Key Arts was formed in 1989 as a unique and ground-breaking accessible space; and accessibility for all continues to be a key philosophy of the company.
