Queensland Touring Showcase is an important annual event for artists, producers, presenters, venues and key industry players across the Queensland touring network 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.

Producers and presenters are encouraged to examine the following information carefully to make best uses of your resources and time.

Performing Arts Exchange (PAX)

The Performing Arts Exchange (PAX) is PAC Australia’s flagship networking and development event.  It’s a face-to-face event which brings together producers, programmers and presenters from across the country to create and maximise touring opportunities and build relationships with a focus on national touring.

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. 

Showcase features a dynamic mix of production pitching and performance excerpt sessions, as well as time for planning and discussion between producers and presenters to create stronger, more meaningful touring outcomes.
