Lyrici Arts are a part of the Collaborative Touring Network (CTN), which is a collective of 8 organisations nationally who believe every town deserves life-affirming, soul-shaking, perspective-changing shows. We have been working with artists and our communities since 2016, to make this possible in our places, which are; Wigan, Gloucester, Hull, Torbay, Thanet, Peterborough, Medway and Wandsworth.
In the next year, we want to work with an artist/company to develop and tour a live show with communities in our 8 places. Expression of Interest applications are now open, and you can find all the information here: www.ctn.org.uk
We want to work with artists who have stories that often go unheard, whose practice will include our communities, and who are up for their shows being performed in non-typical spaces, like car parks, rooftops, community centres. If you know of artists who you think would be excited to work in this way with us, it would be amazing if you could share this info with them.
The deadline for expressions of interest is Monday 5 July at 10am. This EOI stage will be followed by 2 additional stages of application, with the final decision to be made collaboratively by the network by August 30.
