NRTF Welsh Conference and Showcase 2011

The 2011 NRTF Conference and showcase festival "Extending the Reach" took place in Caerleon, Newport, Wales.

NRTF worked in partnership with Arts Council Wales and the Night Out Scheme to deliver a 3 day conference and showcase event in Caerleon Wales. The conference attracted 150 delegates from across the whole of the rural touring network, voluntary promoters, professional scheme workers and artists and performers as well as funders and other organisations with an interest in rural and community touring. We also welcomed delegates from Sweden, Scotland and New Zealand.

As well as discussions, seminars, key not speeches and networking opportunities, NRTF showcased the work of 22 performing companies. 16 non showcasing companies took market place tables and 10 performers/companies made a 1 minute pitch.
