Program Overview

Regional Arts Victoria’s Touring Team consists of two programs, each managing a series of touring works: 

  • Connecting Places connecting with community presenters and touring work to halls across Victoria.
  • Touring Services working with producers and artists to tour their works to Performing Arts Centres around Victoria and across the nation. Touring works are primarily programmed via Showcase Victoria.

Artists can also tour performances and workshop programs to schools throughout regional and metropolitan Victoria via our Creative Learning program.

Across these three programs, Regional Arts Victoria tours performing arts, live music, theatre, circus, workshops and residency-based projects.

We provide Tour Coordination for artists across both Victorian and interstate venues. This includes booking tour itineraries, negotiating fees on behalf of the artist, managing funding applications, and if successful, coordinating the creation of appropriate marketing materials, and contracting, invoicing, booking of logistics and final reporting on behalf of the artist. Companies we work with are expected to manage the pre-production phase of the tour, and are encouraged to develop close working relationships with the venues they tour to.

What is Showcase Victoria? Showcase Victoria is Australia’s leading state-based performing arts marketplace and a critical part of Victoria’s touring process. The two-day event provides a unique platform for producers, artists and theatre-makers to make connections and showcase their work to a wide range of venue managers and programmers with the ultimate aim of facilitating touring.
