NRTF is delighted to announce that it will be working with Swedish and French colleagues through 2014 to develop a joint project submitted for EU funding. Following on from our existing links with Riksteatern, developed over a number of years, our colleagues at Riksteatern Vasternorrland have been able to secure a grant to support the costs of developing the project. Its central aim is to increase the level and quality of performing arts touring in rural areas within the 3 partner countries.
Our other partners will be Northern France based agencies; Spectacle vivant en Bretagne and Odia Normandie. Over the next 10 months a series of planning meetings will take place, one of which will be at the time of the NRTF New Directions 2014 Showcase Conference. If successful we would aim to start the project in 2015.
