Call 2: Working sustainably internationally

Create a network of international touring which allows each project that travels to be presented in more them 1 venue

What aspect of sustainable international work concerns you?

The amount of energy, money, time that 1 presentation abroad consumes. How can we make touring more efective and affordable without compromising art?

Description

To create an international tour network of programmers enabling the presentation of live performances in more than 1 venue in that country or region (in case of larger countries). It can be implemented with the help of the Government Arts Council who centralizes the touring proposals during a certain time period, through an open call, and after connects each theatre to develop an effort of programing that performance at least in two different venues.

How can your idea or proposal have an impact on international practice within or with Flanders and Brussels and beyond?

It will help to open the practice to more proposals and to maximize the effort invested in presenting that performance in that country. For the artist or company is also a benefit, insuring they will have more work and centralizing the contacts in just one place, instead of contacting each programmer individually. For programmers who wishes to get to know new proposals, it can also be a way of having contact with a sort of catalogue, reducing the need to travel in order to assist live performances.
