After nearly 40 years of creating extraordinary work with Emergency Exit Arts, Deb Mullins has announced that she is stepping down from her role as EEA’s Artistic Director, in order to undertake national and international projects and consultancies in her own right.
Having produced and directed hundreds of multi-art form projects and events that engage diverse communities and artists as participants and collaborators, Deb is now looking forward to the opportunity of forming new partnerships, sharing her skills and passing on her experience to a new generation of artists and producers.
Deb's knowledge, pioneering spirit and passion for creating inclusive and ambitious work have enabled EEA to grow into one of the UK’s leading lights in outdoor arts and we’ll be sorry to see her go, but we support her decision and wish her every success with her future endeavours.
Meanwhile, we are gearing up to deliver more great EEA events and experiences in London and across the country throughout 2019.
This includes our popular People’s Parlour, which is back every Thursday here in Greenwich, providing a space for local people over 60 to socialise, create art and share skills. We’re very excited by our new project, Zara, the major national commission we’re working on with Mind the Gap and Walk the Plank, which takes place in May. Plus, Paper Peace, which travelled to several cities last year, is coming back in 2019.
