Arts Council England – Strategic touring programme briefing event
Date: Thursday 23 February 2012
Venue: Arts Council England
21 Bond Street
Time: 10.00am - 1.15pm (registration opens at 9.30am)
About the briefing:
The Arts Council’s Strategic touring programme was launched on 5 December 2011. The programme aims to ensure that people across England have improved access to great art visiting their local area. This includes:
- better access to high quality work for people in places in England which rely on touring for much of their arts provision
- more high quality work to reach people and places with the least engagement
- more high quality work on tour connecting more effectively with people across a wide range of venues
The briefing will:
- outline the new programme and its aims, which have been drawn from our national approach to touring
- provide an opportunity to hear about the programme first hand and ask questions about it
- provide the opportunity to network with potential partners within the region and to discuss any ideas you might have regarding working with other organisations nationally
Who should attend?
The programme is open to people working in a wide range of roles both within and outside Arts Council England’s National portfolio organisations including: artists, producers, promoters, festivals, venues and local authorities
We anticipate demand for this event will be high so places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis and strictly limited to one person per organisation.
