What clients say about Dodgy Clutch
Full of surprises "They are full of surprises, they involve audiences and communities and really stretch their imaginations and bring what's inside our young people out." Mick Henry, Leader, Gateshead Council
Not just doing the norm "What we particularly like is that Dodgy Clutch is not just doing the norm it's actually looking at different ways of reaching different audiences." John Mowbray, Public Affairs Manager, Northumbrian Water
Important memories and skills "People talk very fondly about Dodgy Clutch projects from eight, nine, ten years ago They get under the skin of the place and people and leave behind really important memories and skills." Andrew Dixon, Director, Newcastle Gateshead Initiative
People can engage. "It's serious issues that come across but in a very positive way that people can engage with at all levels and all ages." Carol Bell, Newcastle Gateshead Initiative
A catalyst for new work "They've become a catalyst for new work because they bring new musicians and artists and makers into the area and spark off different ideas." Carol Alevroyanni, Creative Partnerships
Standards of Quality "We're a classic match because their standards of quality are the standards that I'm looking for from performers - and our standards here are very, very high". Duchess of Northumberland
Imagination "South African blacks are like ripe fruits ready to be plucked. they can sing, they can dance. Dodgy Clutch had the imagination to see that." Zola Zembe, Tyume Valley Project
Really listened "I think that a key to success was the fact that when we had been mulling over ideas Elaine and Ozzie really listened to what I was saying about the ethos of Guiding and got the mood of the two key events absolutely right. I loved working with the team; they were an asset to the camp. The actual events were well up to my expectations and for the closing far beyond." Hilary Cooper, Girl Guides, Centenary Camp Director 2010
Energy, Vitality and Innovation "The Dodgy Clutch South Asian Festival at the school was a breathtaking experience. An insight into the sights, tastes and sounds of another culture, it brought energy, vitality and innovation into the curriculum. It developed the children's and staff's knowledge and skills and cohesion between school and surrounding community." Joanna Scott, Art Co-ordinator, Hedworth Lane Primary School, South Tyneside.
