From the Ground Up held a Showcase Day on 23 March 2013 for Somerset performers and artists to show extracts of their work to village hall promoters, venue and festival programmers.
From the Ground Up was a project that developed through the collaboration of several Somerset organisations, The Regal Theatre Minehead, ARTlife, Theatre Melange, Bridgwater Arts Centre and Take Art. The aim of the project was to encourage creative people at a local level to work together and also to encourage local arts promotions.
Funded by Arts Council England Thrive2, the project ended in April 2013. A final event was held on 23 March where 30 performers; musicians, theatremakers, creative practitioners and workshop leaders presented extracts of work to an invited audience of over 70 people. These included village hall promoters, arts centre/theatre and festival programmers.
