Since we started in 2005, we have worked with literally hundreds of different artists and companies in many different and wonderful ways. We have produced and toured work across four different continents (USA, Europe, Asia & Australasia) including around 250 individual UK performances a year. We have delighted, enthralled and challenged thousands of audience members aged from 5 to 85, we’ve even got a few hundred of them involved in a show or two.


We have sourced well over 3 million pounds worth of funding for our artists/ Dep Arts Productions and to deliver our numerous projects. (we write a lot of funding bids !)


We have a core staff team of four in addition to a host of specialist freelance staff / Associate Producer’s who come in to work with us on any given project technical, press, marketing, designers, directors even ┬áthe odd van driver or 2. The company’s office is based in Quarry Hill, the cultural quarter for Leeds where we have been based since 2009.


“Dep Arts are a massive plus for this region and beyond. Their patient and thoughtful support of a huge range of artists is one of the reasons that we (as a region) are beginning to effectively punch our weight on the national stage. On a more personal level their ongoing interest in the work that we, Theatre in the Mill, have been developing over the last five years has been a game changer.”
