Factory Nights 2009-10


Building on the success of the pilot Factory Nights programme in 2008, rednile Projects Ltd succeeded in gaining further funding from Arts Council England and Northern Rock Foundation to deliver a more experimental, research based series of Factory Nights over a year long programme in 2009 – 2010.

The programme consisted of seven Factory Nights events across the North East with the addition of a celebratory Factory Folk exhibition and a publication. The programme also saw the introduction of a New Commission/ New Collaboration fund which gave opportunities for all attendees to apply for a bursary to develop work inspired by the Factory Night they attended . Due to the popularity of the programme and interest from local businesses and Local Authorities, further Factory Nights were added to the programme, this included hosting a Factory Night in the West Midlands and Northern Thailand allowing the project to have further reach in terms of geography, funding, support in-kind and artistic engagement.
