As part of the Eyeview programme, we want to test how we can strengthen the network and opportunities for Torbay’s creatives. There is a particular need to develop the production and technical infrastructure locally, so that skilled individuals can generate new ideas and opportunities, and support progression routes for those starting out on production careers.
We’ll be working with a wide variety of people – producers, stage managers, technicians – all the people who make great things happen behind the scenes. The idea of the ‘crucible’ is to bring these people together – through new opportunities, employment, placements, training – depending on career stage and aspirations.
The Eyeview production team is now installed in our production base on Winner Street, and we want this to become a space that not only attracts people to get involved in Eyeview, but also acts as a ‘cook up’ space for new activity, and a base for wider cultural producing and activities. Over the coming months, we’re also hoping to use this space for meet-ups, workshops, performances and events by local creatives and communities.
In this way, we’re galvanising local energy, so that makers, producers, technicians and ‘people who make things happen’ can try out the benefits of working more collaboratively with a view to forming a more structured collective for the future.
