UK Theatre and SOLT, working with colleagues across the sector, are running a programme of events to help improve the deal between venues and producers.
As discussions at the Theatre and Touring Symposium 2018 showed; the touring, producing and presenting ecology has changed considerably in recent years. We know that our industry is at risk if it doesn’t adapt to the changing context.
UK Theatre and SOLT will hold a series of UK wide forums for venues, producers and touring companies, where everyone can get involved to:
- Devise a contemporary, consistent and clear way to make the most of what they have
- Build stronger relationships
- Improve the long term health of the touring, producing and presenting model
Anyone from the sector who may be interested will be welcome to take part in the forums.
The sessions will provide a space for venues and producers to understand each other’s operating context, to discuss wider issues affecting touring, and to consult on the contents of the new Producing, Presenting and Touring handbook.
The new Producing, Presenting and Touring handbook will be published in April and will help all parties use clear and consistent ways of working. It will also lead to a shared understanding of the operating context for venues, producers and touring companies.
Further discussions and actions concentrating on wider issues affecting the health of touring will be taken forward at the Theatre and Touring Symposium in June 2019.
Do you want to share your views on the Handbook content but can't make it along to a discussion forum? Take our online survey to let us know your thoughts on the existing material and what else you would like to see in the final Producing, Presenting and Touring Handbook.
