laura ducceschi : creative – curator – producer
A music & arts programmer, producer, thinker and dreamer who believes in the limitless potential of art and is motivated by artists and ideas with an integrity that helps us see, connect and question. Devising, curating, delivering projects and programmes that keep a raw, bold and fresh point and purpose.
Driven predominantly by the creation of new work and with a primary discipline of music, projects and curations are nearly always multidisciplinary intertwining with literature, visual art, film, dance and theatre
Laura works independently and currently leads on the music programme for the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, an organisation she describes as a rare gem driven by spirit, soul and integrity. Previous programming and producing roles have included Music Producer – Brighton Dome and Festival, and Head of Live Programming for visual arts organisation, De La Warr Pavilion.
In devising new work, Laura believes the work chooses you and then it is a case of nurturing an alchemy to vehicle or catalyse it.
Laura has devised and produced works that have gone onto to tour nationally and internationally including Sydney Opera House, Royal Festival Hall, Musikfest, Holland Festival.
In 2016 laura was honoured to become a fellow of The Arts Foundation and receive their Creative Producer Award and has since gone onto establish the non for profit company Studio Lupa.
“Laura Ducceschi is a galvaniser of good and rhythmic connection. Her energy is a kind of delight.”
– Ali Smith, writer
“Like a barefoot marathon runner, Laura tackles the most enormous of tasks with a soft, considered step, a consummate focus and the most sensitive concern for the well being of her artists, their vision and their art.”
– Sam Lee, singer and artist
