Dot to Dot Now Closed
Rhapsode was based in Letchworth in North Herts. Rhapsode was a professional community arts* production company that runs projects and aims to take the arts to wider audiences. We had our own gallery with in-house cafe called Dot to Dot and we also facilitated pop-ups and exhibitions. We worked with festivals, schools, and we helped artists put on exciting, innovative shows and performances. We can did book launches, productions, street festivals....
*Arts: all the arts! Music, drama, visual art, digital art, dance, literature.......
Dot to Dot's history
In 2012, Rhapsode arrived at a point where it could no longer continue to expand and develop without a SPACE of its own. Happily, down on The Wynd, Rhapsode found a space, that we transformed into a hub of creativity.
Dot to Dot was set up as an art gallery that 'keeps art real': a changing resident artist, art materials to use, suggested activities, wifi, creatives networking meetings, rehearsal space, coffee and cake to fuel creativity... And with all this, Dot to Dot happily went from strength to strength.
In summer 2014 we successfully ran a crowd funding campaign that meant we could move into larger premises. And so we now have four times the space and four times the fun.
All profits from sales in the gallery are funnelled straight back into Rhapsode so we can carry on doing the work we do. So, most importantly, the workshops, performances and projects we run are subsidised by the money raised in the gallery. The aim of this gallery is to support creativity in Letchworth, and uphold the core values of Rhapsode.
