Arts Council England: Strategic Touring Programme

Arts & Culture

Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Programme funds touring work, focusing especially on areas where people have low engagement with the arts and those that rely on touring for much of their arts provision. It also seeks to extend the reach of high-quality work by broadening the range of venues presenting it, as well as forging stronger relationships between audiences, promoters, venues, artists and producers.

The programme supports a wider range of high-quality work, with a focus on work that is toured to people and places with the least engagement and reflects the diversity of local communities and/or contemporary England and increases work that supports the Creative Case for Diversity .

Current priorities are:

  • Incoming international work
  • Mid-scale theatre (drama going to venues with 400-800 seats)

Any individual or organisation can apply, including National Portfolio Organisations, Major Partner Museums, libraries and partnerships, networks or consortia.

Deadlines for 2017/18 are:

14 July 2017 (for projects starting on or after 6 October 2017)
22 September 2017 (for projects starting on or after 15 December 2017)
17 November 2017 (for projects starting on or after 9 February 2018)
26 January 2017 (for projects starting on or after 20 April 2018)
