Arts Projects Australia is working with Creative New Zealand to manage a pilot program to get high quality New Zealand performing arts on the road in Australia – including regional and remote Australia.
There are many artists and companies in New Zealand making exciting new work that will connect with a wide range of audiences in Australia, and this project will see a small, curated number of those companies selected to participate in the Touring Australia pilot, which will run over a four-year period.
The deadline for proposals is 12 November 2012.
This is the first Call for Expressions of Interest to New Zealand companies. Please note that other opportunities will arise throughout project’s timeframe. Arts Projects Australia would like to hear from companies with high quality contemporary dance, theatre or multi-disciplinary work presented in an original and professional way.
Selection will be based on the criteria of excellence, ‘appeal’ and tour readiness. The companies should demonstrate they have a creative vision, the potential to engage diverse audiences, a touring track record and that the work being offered is, or will be, ‘tour ready’. It will have already premiered or will premiere before 15 March 2013, and be designed to tour.
Please include a 'tour summary’ with your proposal, including:
You should outline your company’s infrastructure, including your capacity:
Please also provide a brief explanation of your touring objectives and how touring in Australia aligns with your international market development plans.
It is envisaged that two of the shortlisted companies will tour in Australia before the middle of 2014.
