  • Develop relationships between artist and programmers, artists and audiences, and artists and a number of aspirational satellite partners, by developing sustained relationships through the programming of Associate Companies over the three years.
  • Develop a programme of touring shows that reflect, celebrate and resonate with the unique nature of contemporary UK coastal towns and their communities
  • Engage resident communities to embrace, and at times participate in the work through a considered and targeted Audience Development Plan. At the same time, challenging regional visitors to re-evaluate perceptions of the contemporary English seaside.

The project is led by SeaChange Arts with funding from the Arts Council's Strategic Touring Fund.  The rest of the partnership is made up of Activate in Dorset, Hull Freedom Festival, Hastings Borough Council, Worthing Theatres (Worthing Borough Council), Mouth of the Tyne Festival (North Tyneside), LeftCoast in Blackpool and Wyre, Dreamland Margate, So Festival in Skegness and Theatre Orchard.
