Producing, Programming, Collaborating

Filotico Arts is a cultural organisation and production company making strange things happen in the literature, storytelling and performance art sectors. We organise boutique events, programme large scale festivals, create artistic movements, disrupt traditions, question morals, produce new work across both digital and live art, and train artists in business and businesses in art.

Filotico Arts is made up of Livia Filotico and a host of artists, freelancers, creatives and thinkers brought together by a desire to build an international network of change makers.

Collaborations and relationships are at the heart of what we do.  Whether you are a potential collaborator, an artist looking for advice, or a curious passerby, thank you for stopping by, and welcome.


Do you enjoy telling stories and have some experience of performance?

Are you a 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation migrant?

Join us for #Tellyours2018, a free programme for emerging storytellers.


 

What we do

Letter Seal
Production

As a Creative Producer I make things happen. Producing is about working in collaboration with other people to craft new pieces of work and bringing them into the world. It is about changing our environment, and changing ourselves. I have produced festivals, shows, books and magical objects.

Programming

I bring existing shows to libraries, galleries, and arts venues. Programming is about exploring knowledge and relationships. It is also about bringing together talented artists, thinkers and activists and giving them a space to explore, question, and debate.

Artistic Development

I mentor, support and advise artists. If you are an emerging storyteller, writer, artist or thinker who cares about language and words, then take a look at our opportunities. We run workshops and development programmes.

At the core of it all

Post-It Note
Collaborations

Most of our projects are carried out in partnership. This might include artists, thinkers, philosophers, scientists, witches, politicians and anyone else we think would add a diverse point of view to our portfolio. Get in touch if you want to work with us on a new project, or if you want to join one of our on-going ones.

Conviviality

Production of an event, an experience or an artwork is about the craft of an idea. Whereas programing is about puling together strands from people who’ve already committed to a theme, production is about zooming in

International outlook

We have worked with Italy, Russia, South and North America and we are expanding. If you’re an international collaborator, you can email me to bring our work to your city or bring yours to mine.

What My Clients Say

I approached Livia for professional advice on sponsorships with literary organisations and PR & marketing. I was absolutely thrilled by our collaboration and, with Livia's help we were successfully able to refine our sponsorship strategy, develop literary partnerships and exceed our financial gaols for the festival. Livia has the ability to cut through the obstacles of a project and deliver the best possible results. Her experience in the publishing industry, her marketing and managerial skills, and her personal commitment to her work makes working with her an extremely positive and fruitful experience. I look forward to working with her again. Mend Mariwany
