Doin’ It On The Road: An Artist’s Guide to Touring and Community Engagement

Monday, September 26 | Noon – 4:30 p.m.
Bonaire 3

A program of the National Performance Network/Visual Arts Network

PAE pre-conference workshops are free for conference attendees; please RSVP during your registration process.

Focusing on cultivating relationships with prospective presenters and building strategic partnerships, this workshop provides practical information for touring artists including samples of useful tools such as contracts, structures for pricing your work, a technical rider, insurance and a resource guide which includes subsidy opportunities, grant programs and field connections. Engaging with community beyond the stage creates a more deeply invested audience, breathes new life into the work, and increases the artist’s marketability. Through participatory, problem solving exercises, attendees will explore how to negotiate community engagement activities in different settings.

Faculty: Andrea AssafWilliam Bowling
