arTour offers a variety of services and resources to support touring throughout Queensland. We work directly with presenters and producers to help develop and deliver tours of all shapes, sizes and destinations. Whether it's your first foray into touring or you're a seasoned hand, arTour is an important and useful friend to have working alongside you.
If you're looking for some assistance in finding a production to bring to town there are some important first steps.
Firstly, know who the audience will be for the show. It's much easier to find the right fit for your town if you have some idea of who is likely to come along and how many people might be interested. This will also help plan your budgets and marketing activities.
Next, jump onto arTour's website and browse through the shows that are currently available. You can search based on cost, audience match, or show type. Save the shows you're interested in so you can find them again easily later.
Finally, give us a call. arTour's Creative Broker is available to chat with at any stage of the process to give you advice, suggestions and ideas about what might work in your community. Discuss the shows you have selected and narrow in on the right choice.
arTour will be able to liaise between producers and presenters, help with audience and program development and even offers tour coordination and marketing support services.
Each year, arTour presents the Queensland Touring Showcase where producers and presenters from around the state meet to discuss touring productions and gather expressions of interest for potentially viable tours. It's a great way to meet others, find out what is available and find out about exciting new initiatives. More information about the Showcase can be found here.
Happy touring - look forward to hearing from you soon!
