Dens & Signals is a not-for-profit arts company based in Hastings. Our events bring people together to create connections, shared moments and future possibilities.

  • We make performances and participatory events.
  • We create workshops, sharings, meals, and spaces to think.
  • We think that everyone should have access to thoughtful, life-enhancing experiences.
  • We love dealing with big themes in beguiling ways, celebrating personal experience, and promoting positive change for individuals and communities.

Our projects are always unique to the time, place and people around which they’re made: we’re good at working in—and adapting to—different places and situations.

We work directly with audiences, including with those not usually engaged with the arts, and we regularly collaborate with other artists, like minded charities and organisations, scientists and expert thinkers to make things happen.

Directors Jane Packman and Ben Pacey established Dens and Signals in 2015. We’ve been making performance and participatory events together since 2008.
