Artichoke Trust

Founded in 2005 by Helen Marriage and Nicky Webb, Artichoke produces extraordinary large-scale events that appeal to the widest possible audience and live in the memory forever. They don’t believe the arts should take place only behind the closed doors of theatres or art galleries; instead, they put on shows in unusual places – in the streets, public spaces or in the countryside.

Artichoke is best known for producing events such as Royal de Luxe’s The Sultan’s Elephant, La Machine’s 50-foot high mechanical spider, Antony Gormley’s One & Other and Deborah Warner’s commission for the London 2012 Festival, Peace Camp.
