A vital resource for both artists, producers and students The Producers: Alchemists of the Impossible was commissioned by Arts Council England and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation to celebrate and explore the role of the producer in the arts. It looks at the stories of a selection of individuals working across the arts to discover the qualities, vision and energy that drive them.
"At a time when ideas are shifting about how we might all respond to the producer, it is intended as a stimulus for artists, producers, and organisations, and for thinkers, funders and decision makers, to elaborate our understanding of the people who are driven to express themselves in this way, and what they do is of such value to us all"
