Queensland Touring Showcase is an important annual event for artists, producers, presenters and key industry players across Queensland to come together and exchange ideas, discuss new opportunities, plan and collaborate.

In 2019 arTour is excited to collaborate with two Queensland events which will extend opportunities for Queensland based producers and presenters to pitch and see pitches.

arTour will be aligning Showcase with Arts Ablaze in October as well as supporting Queensland artists and producers at the national market PAX in August.


Queensland Touring Showcase

In 2019 Queensland Touring Showcase will be held as a part of Arts Ablaze, a conference and a celebration of regional arts in Queensland. Managed by the Scenic Rim Regional Council, the event focuses on the transformation of regional communities and arts practice through attitudes, access, people and place. It is the first Queensland state based regional arts conference in many years. The event will be at the Ramada Resort, Kooralbyn Valley in the Scenic Rim.

Showcase at Arts Ablaze will feature a dynamic mix of production pitching and time for planning and discussion between producers and presenters to create stronger, more meaningful touring outcomes. Showcase is designed to maximise opportunities for productions that meet the 2021 programming needs of Managed Venues.
