Based in the North East, Stellar Projects combines the knowledge and creativity of Lyndsey Stephenson and Rachel Willis who between them have extensive experience of producing imaginative and inspiring events and arts projects.
We have a passion for creating amazing collective experiences, for making those ‘you just had to be there’ moments. Our projects bring people together, using innovative approaches to create events that amaze and entertain.
We have experience in delivering arts-led projects, events and celebrations for both the public sector and local communities. We understand what makes for successful and engaging programmes and we combine curatorial expertise with excellent project management skills. We have worked with countless artists, performers, companies and organisations to create bespoke arts projects and produce extraordinary events and experiences.
We love a challenge and work on small and large scale projects and events in arts and community venues, in outdoor spaces and unusual locations. So whatever your idea, however ambitious it may seem, big or small, whatever the budget, just get in touch so we can help you bring your project to life!
