History

Since we started in 2006, we have worked with literally hundreds of different artists and companies in many different ways. We have produced and toured work across four different continents (USA, Europe, Asia & Australasia) including approximately 250 individual UK performances a year. We have sourced well over 3 million pounds worth of funding for our artists/ Dep Arts Productions and to deliver our numerous projects.

 

We have a core staff team of five in addition to a host of specialist freelance / Associate Producer staff who come in to work with us on any given project. The company’s office is based in Quarry Hill, the cultural quarter for Leeds where we have been based since 2009.

 

The really exciting thing about Dep Arts’ arrival on the scene in the last few years is the quality they bring to every part of their operation. That level of attention to the quality of the audience experience has been brilliantly provoking to the whole sector. You can see the impact it’s had on the region’s theatre, especially the new writing sector. It’s why we’re so excited to be working them. Leeds has really benefitted from having a producer of that quality in the city.”
