Theatre and dance development agency Activate Performing Arts (Activate), has appointed Sandbanks-based public relations consultancy, Liz Lean PR (LLPR) to help raise its profile across Dorset.

Previously partnering in the lead up to the Inside Out Dorset festival in 2012, LLPR has been commissioned to raise awareness of Activate, the firm behind the biennial festival.

Kate Wood, Executive Director for Activate said: “Planning for Inside Out 2014 is well underway and by appointing Liz and her team now, we can extend our reach and bring great art to everyone across Dorset.”

Liz Willingham, Managing Director of Liz Lean PR, said: “It’s an absolute delight to work with Activate again. The performers and artists involved with Activate are so dynamic and we hope to make the public aware that there’s a lot of fantastic work that goes on behind the scenes every day in our county.”
