People-Focused Producing

Are you looking to become part of a growing network of producers?

Do you organise events and wish you had better tools to help you do that? Is there a specific producer skill you want to develop? Are you working in community organising and would like to know more about access, wellbeing, and safeguarding? Would you like to know how to make your creative ideas happen?

People-Focused Producing is China Plate’s ongoing programme of free, one-off training sessions, each looking at a specific aspect of making creative projects happen.

Sessions are led by guest facilitators and offer participants toolkits and resources that unlock essential producing skills, in-depth insight and perspective. There is no expectation to attend all sessions, you can simply sign up for which ones feel most useful to you.

Who is People-Focused Producing for?

The programme aims to support and resource creatives or producers at different stages in their careers, including those without a creative background who are actively creating and producing events in and with their communities.

It’s for anyone that is interested in developing a sustainable producing practice by learning new skills, refining prior skillsets, or up-skilling.
