Nuketown.jpgARC is a producing theatre. This means that we commission artists to develop new work and support them as they go out on tour around the UK.

The summer programme at ARC's cinema

cinema_carousel.jpgAs ARC Programme Coordinator, I do lots of things. I work with artists coming in to perform or make work here, I work with other venues as our associate artist’s tour the country, and I work with independent cinema programmer Gareth Negus to curate and programme ARC’s 131 seat cinema. We’ve just launched our really exciting summer cinema programme, which is a great example of the variety of films we screen at ARC.
