MashUp! Productions

MashUp! Productions specialises in producing bespoke projects and events underpinned by the principles of Claire’s research. At the heart of all we do is a commitment to making people the heroes and stars of their own adventures and freeing people up to play and participate. We produce massive parties, intimate installations and everything in between.

We have a diverse portfolio of projects, events, venue curation and productions.
