International Village of Culture

Culturapedia was contracted by the Northern Touring Consortium to commission two UK companies (and their international partners) to produce work for a showcase event at the National Rural Touring Forum’s 2009 Conference, in partnership with Culture10. Following their successful showcasing, Dodgy Clutch, and Grand Theatre of Lemmings went on to be commissioned by the Consortium to tour their work across the North in Spring 2011 and we ran the project on their behalf. This project involved multiple partners, a broad funding mix, artistic risk, and the need to make the work deliverable in rural communities. Watch a documentary video about the work here. The project took 5 years, and was funded by the Arts Council and the partners of the Culture10 NewcastleGateshead festival.
