It’s been a while.
As you may have seen from our social media we have been doing lots of work behind the scenes in the past year and we wanted to start sharing it with you all.
The first and probably biggest change is our name. We are now UTA Arts CIC and this means we have become a Community Interest Company. This is really exciting for us because as a CIC we now have the opportunity to bring more of what we do to our audiences, and really grow our community. We will still be using the trading name of Up the Ante for our performances and pieces of live theatre but now we have the option to expand beyond this and widen the reach of what we do.
As those of you who have attended our workshops will know we love being able to share our way of approaching creative practice with as wide a range of people as possible. UTA Arts CIC gives us the opportunity to do this. We can now expand the workshop and artistic development opportunities we offer to our creative community, while also continuing to explore our own process through our Up the Ante productions.
We have always wanted this blog to be a window into what we do and we will be relaunching and continuing this. We want to be as open as possible about our process and give people an idea of what to expect if they are working with us or attending any workshops or events we are running.
We are going to have lots of exciting news to share over the next few months, and we cannot wait to share our plans with you for the coming year - so watch this space!
