Welcome to our 2023 Touring Program!
Do you want to bring incredible shows to your regional town? Do you have access to a small hall (or similar) where you could host them?
Connecting Places is a performing arts touring program tailored to small halls and other community-run spaces. This program offers a range of productions for volunteer groups that want to present live performances in their communities, also known as community presenters. Scroll down to view what’s on offer for 2023 touring!
In addition to the range of productions available for booking, Connecting Places provides exciting learning opportunities for community presenters including workshops, mentorships, one-on-one support, and other forms of professional development.
Regional Arts Victoria recognises the important role that community presenters play in the wellbeing and vitality of regional communities. Connecting Places aims to support these groups to program high quality and affordable shows that appeal to their communities and to learn sustainable presenting skills.
Feel free to get in touch or visit our website for more information. We look forward to working with you!
