If you are an artist working in Derby, Derbyshire or the Midlands, Déda wants to help!

During these unprecedented times, we are offering 1-2-1 surgeries with our Creative Producer, Phil Hargreaves, to help artists and producers over the next few weeks navigate the current climate.

Sign up for a 45-minute chat to talk over anything from creative ideas, challenges you may be facing in the current climate, support with writing emergency fund applications, networking or just for a general chin wag.

The sessions will be delivered on Zoom and allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Please note, priority will be given to artists and producers who identify as working class, BAME, disabled or from the LGBTQI+ community, to ensure Déda continues to support the wonderfully diverse community that surrounds our artistic programmes.

These are unprecedented times, to help us ensure these opportunities reach and connect across communities please help us distribute via social networks, emails and digital bulletins.
