|Artemis Productions UK|
Artemis Productions was established in 2000. Based in Liverpool they are a street theatre company that specialises in vibrant stilt walking characters and interactive performance. They have built on their reputation of producing high quality stilt characters and regularly perform nationally and internationally at festivals and events including Nottingham Riverside Festival, London Mela, Liverpool International Music Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Sibiu Theatre Festival (Romania) and Eid Al Adha 2015 Festival (Doha Qatar).
The core company consists of founder member, Barry Han, a musician, designer, costume maker, and Sarah Han an actress, costume maker and workshop facilitator. Artemis thrive on being challenged to create new characters based on a brief and some of their most recent work has been produced this way. Working with Culture Liverpool, Artemis were commissioned to produce two giant flamingos inspired by the paintings of John James Audubon for the re opening of Liverpool Central Library and Light Night Liverpool. Artemis also deliver circus skills and performance workshops to schools and public groups.
Their work is often influenced by nature and movement and always has a playful, open sense of fun and mischief. The next phase of development for Artemis will see them add to their existing portfolio of characters and produce ground based walkabout shows and collaborations with other artists and companies.

Inspiring us is a new and exciting era of Welsh outdoor work currently developing, with networking events such as Articulture’s The Great Outdoors Conference in 2012, and ground breaking work from organisations such as NoFit State Circus, Pontio and National Theatre Wales.
Through small scale events, funding support and commissions, working directly with Wales based arts practitioners, development officers, funders, venues, festivals, and businesses, Articulture aims to sow seeds and generate space for new connections, conversations and nurturing of ideas.

Hogarth Productions presents multi-disciplinary contemporary art
Having both trained as actors, we have been involved in theatre as performers, writers and directors for 20 years. While we’ve shared a long-held passion for contemporary art, we have not studied art history or been to university or art school. As such, our attitude towards creating and curating art works is highly distinctive as we focus on the audience and how artists can communicate with them most effectively – to inspire, move, provoke and entertain.
This often takes our work out of galleries and academic spaces and into the high street, the pub, the workplace, the home. Our conversations about art avoid words that most people don’t understand and gets people thinking about what art means to them in their everyday lives.
Our work ranges from commissions tailor made to specific locations or environments as well as touring projects. We are Artistic Directors of The Whitley Arts Festival – an annual contemporary arts festival in Reading which has been a commissioning festival since 2009.
