THE PRODUCER FARM IS A residency which provides time and space for contemporary performance producers to refresh their current practice, and consider their future potential.

After running for three successful consecutive years, the week-long residency for creative producers returns to Coombe in June 2018. The programme aims to provide time and space to consider your current work and future potential.

A truly inspirational cohort of speakers, provocateurs and fierce facilitators…. A hugely useful reorganisation of priorities and values that will impact the rest of my career. SARAH SHARP, 2018 PARTICIPANT
