Established as a limited company in 2003 Whitestone Arts produces and facilitates creative, cross-media projects. At our base in the West Yorkshire Pennines we develop new collaborative work, supporting emerging artists and hosting workshops on landscape, visual art, dance and text.
In 2018 Whitestone Arts collaborated with 59 Productions on Stormy House, a multimedia installation exploring the ghost worlds of Wuthering Heights and old Japan. This premiered in Haworth under the auspices of the Brontë Parsonage Museum. Other projects include Crossing the Line, a live dance performance and film about walking, made with Pennine Prospects in 2012.
Visiting artists and companies have included Opera North Projects, Verd de Gris community arts company, John Britton’s Duende Ensemble, Snow Goose, Displace Yourself Theatre, 59 Productions, visual artists Red Saunders and Catherine Bertola, theatre director Katie Mitchell, Order of Canada dancer and choreographer Margie Gillis, American performer and choreographer Paola Styron, writers William Atkins and Pierre Cendors.
