Performing Artist Opportunity - Rural Touring 101

Applause Rural Touring

19 Jan 2024

Join Applause Rural Touring and 101 Outdoor Arts for a one-day workshop for artists and producers who want to make small-scale outdoor shows for rural touring. The workshop will take place on Wednesday 21st February, 9.30am – 4.30pm at 101 Outdoor Arts, Newbury, Berkshire. Free (travel bursaries available).


This FREE practical and informative professional development event aims to give artists insight into how rural touring works in the UK and how to apply for outdoor rural touring commissioning opportunities coming up this year.

Take part in a carousel of activities facilitated by a range of artists and producers who have been successfully touring small-scale shows in rural settings for many years to give you the low down on how to get gigs on the rural touring circuits, pricing models and producing tips, the practical do’s and don’ts and what to expect when on the road.

This workshop is aimed at artists and producers who:

- Want to learn more about small-scale rural touring within outdoor arts and work for public space contexts.

- Already have a show or project that they want to adapt for rural touring.

- Do not currently have a project but are interested in creating work specifically for this type of touring.

- Want to apply for commissioning opportunities in 2024.

- Are exploring ways of engaging audiences in co-creation and participation.
