Kelly Smith Creative Producer
"The best way to predict the future is to create it." Peter Drucker
I've been producing theatre and arts events for 3 years now. In 2010/11, I completed an Apprenticeship with The Brewhouse Theatre & Arts Centre in Taunton where I assisted the Artistic Team and built on my producing credits with Krapp's Last Tape, The Exhibition Of The Teenager, Theatre Uncut and 1984. Since then I have been working as a Freelance Creative Producer, recently delivering The Brewhouse's Jubilee and Olympic Programmes.
As well as working in theatre, I am also a trained Filmmaker and Film Editor and still work from time to time on film projects, mostly editing other people's work. Within film, I recently participated in Watershed's Future Producers Development Programme, where 15 south-west based, up and coming Producers delivered their Fresh Flix strand for children and young people: http://www.watershed.co.uk/whatson/season/153/fresh-flix/.
Through IdeasTap, I have participated in The National Youth Theatre's Press Play programme and was shortlisted for The Old Vic New Voices 24 Hour Plays.
In addition, I recently sat on The Brewhouse Board Of Trustees and am the Secretary for Live 'N' Up, a youth music organisation which provides a platform for young people to perform their music to audiences across the South West. http://www.livenupmusic.co.uk/
Looking to the future, I would like to meet and collaborate with other likeminded creatives to create new and groundbreaking work. This year, I am also hoping to find a professional mentor to support my career development and help me to network and seize opportunities further afield.
