In this discussion we are inviting producers and curators to talk about different strategies of engagement and mobility of performing arts. We invite each speaker to prepare a 5 min presentation about their context and potential strategies to create an open discussion between all of the speakers. We will collectively answer the questions of what is sustainable touring (financial, emotional, environmental) and explore potential alternative models of this.
As we look to the next steps in the recovery our speakers will reflect on their current contexts and future plans as we carve more sustainable futures for artists and institutions. The conversation will be opened up to all attendees to invite a dynamic conversation and build upon the collective knowledge of the group.
