Projects

Déda Producing Limited has gained a reputation for producing outdoor, large-scale accessible events which blend performance and technology. Following on from Games Time and Elemental Force Déda Producing is keen to continue to explore projects which address arts, heritage, tourism, participation and sense of place.

Déda Producing is the Artistic Lead for the annual Derby Festé festival. One of the city’s annual cultural highlights, Derby Festé was established in 2007 and is now one of the best UK street-arts festivals. It has attracted some of the highest quality acts, from across the UK and abroad, to the city's streets. Annually attracting in the region of 35,000 visitors to Derby, it has proved an incredibly popular part of the city's calendar.

After the considerable investment through the Cultural Olympiad, Arts Council England - East Midlands commissioned Déda|Producing to deliver a programme which identified and addressed the issues around building capacity to produce outdoor work in the region. This is called the On Site programme and it offered a series of opportunities through workshops, mentoring, 'go-sees' and meetings, allowing for the creation of potential networks and partnerships.
