East Meets West encourages collaboration between and within the East and West Midlands’ independent theatre communities.
Mobilising everyone* in the sector no matter what their role, we’re helping to create a more democratic, transparent and efficient community. East Meets West revolves around an online Hub and is driven by peer-to-peer support. Our members are collaborators rather than competitors, working together to do their very best for audiences across the region.
We are funded by Arts Council England, supported by venues throughout the Midlands, and curated by Birmingham-based theatre company Little Earthquake (aka Team Quake).
(* Psss! Yes we support artists, but it’s about time others working in the sector got a bit of love too, right?)
