New Partners to join the Collaborative Touring Network



Do you think a regular cultural offer in your town could inspire your community and change the way people relate to the place they live and work? If you have a grassroots connection to your community and big ambitions for its future, this could be the opportunity for you.

In 2016-2019, the Collaborative Touring Network (CTN) will give three independent people/organisations an opportunity to join an existing network of five partners from across England, with support from Battersea Arts Centre. You will be supported by the network to run your own bi-annual festivals featuring some of the UK’s top artists alongside the best of your community’s home grown talent, as well as developing a model of year round creative activity.

What is the Collaborative Touring Network?

In March 2012, Battersea Arts Centre launched a national call out seeking partners from across the country interested in developing the cultural offer in their community. Over the past three years, they have worked as a network to support artists locally and deliver bi-annual festivals of high quality touring work in areas typically associated with low levels of cultural engagement. 

If you are interested in being part of the Collaborative Touring Network, then they are running three introductory sessions

Tuesday 8th March- New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich 1pm - 4pm

Thursday 10th March- MAC, Birmingham 1pm - 4pm

Tuesday 15th March- HOME, Manchester 1pm- 4pm
