Metro Arts supports the development of new performance work, and in turn has identified the need for producing services which elevate work to a local, national and international marketplace. The producing service provides a unique support structure for creators of new performance works in theatre and dance, connecting artists and their work to the market through facilitating national and international touring. Metro Arts is invested in the development of new artists and new work, and the Producing Hub ensures that the stimulation and development of ideas within independent contemporary arts has an impact upon the wider arts community.
