About Us image

We have a passion for creating amazing collective experiences.

Stellar Creates was established in 2016 by the directors, Rachel Willis & Lyndsey Stephenson. Based in the Tees Valley we have over 40 years’ combined experience of producing high quality cultural projects and events, specialising in outdoor arts. We work in partnership with other cultural organisations, festivals and local authorities across the region to deliver projects which engage our local communities and artists, helping instil a sense of pride of place and bringing excellent, impactful and meaningful work to the very heart of Teesside.

We are the founding members of the Tees Festivals Network, a consortium of individuals and organisations which work together to raise the profile of cultural festivals in the area and enhance the social and economic wellbeing of the Tees Valley through our collaborative and creative practice.

We are also members of the Middlesbrough Cultural Partnership and the Redcar & Cleveland Cultural Partnership which are collectives of arts, heritage & culture organisations, businesses and freelancers committed to influencing and shaping the cultural offer in the Tees Valley.
