Laura Ducceschi

With the Arts Foundation Award behind me I made the step I otherwise would not have been able to do and entered entirely into independent working.

Read Laura Ducceschi's testimonial

Brighton based Laura Ducceschi is an independent Creative. Working in the live art arena since 2000, I am currently working in a freelance context to devise programmes, produce new projects and develop creative ideas. I am driven by live work that strives to access the space bigger than our mortal selves. That which helps us connect, promote compassion, a sense of belonging and ultimately inspire us to make a positive contribution to the world.

I crusade for the work of musicians to be treated as fine art and alike. Music is my primary discipline but I largely work in a non-traditional music industry model. Having worked amongst other disciplines including visual art, theatre and contemporary dance, I am passionate about work where disciplines collide, that rarely fit in a neat box. I am committed to research, new ideas and artistic practice itself – enabling thorough development processes to produce ambitious new projects. My heart lies in projects that unite visual and sonic worlds and carry a collaborative, inclusive approach to the work.

I believe wholeheartedly in collaboration; allowing and supporting the creative process to be pushed out of a comfort zone and into new territory. I invite artists of all disciplines to get in contact to discuss potential ideas.

Previous roles include:
Music Producer, Brighton Dome And Festival
Head of Live Programming, De La Warr Pavilion
Independent Promoter/Programmer/Artist Manager
