David started the company in 2005, and we’ve been based in Quarry Hill, Leeds Cultural Quarter, since 2009. In those 10 years we’ve worked with hundreds of artists and companies in many different and wonderful ways.


We’ve produced and toured work across North America, Europe, Asia and Australasia, in addition to hundreds of UK performances per year. We’ve delighted, enthralled and challenged thousands of audience members of all ages – we even got a few hundred of them involved in a show or two.


Over the years we’ve sourced well over £5m worth of funding for our artists and Dep Arts Productions in order to deliver our projects. They’ve included memorable work at events such as the Liverpool Capital Of Culture in 2008, The Cultural Olympiad in 2012 and currently the Rugby World Cup 2015.


We now have a core team of six, bolstered by experienced freelance staff including associate producers, technicians, press and marketing specialists, designers and directors.


“Working with Dep Arts has enabled me not only to get the advice, support and back-up from International, Kick ass Theatre Producers and their years of experience but also receive individual support. I know that there is a team at Dep Arts working towards the same goal as me – building a creative future for myself and my work.”
