Strategic touring funding of £670,000 awarded to four North organisations

Four organisations across the North have been awarded £630,320 in the latest round of ACE Strategic Touring programme.

Wild Rumpus has been awarded £179,500 and its project will increase the amount of high quality work touring to greenfield festivals across the North of England – developing international links and focusing on accessibility and engaging new audiences as part of a partnership with Attitude is Everything.

The Get It Loud in Libraries project (£90,000) plans to engage the 14-25 age group and their families with public libraries by developing a new improved touring library network to showcase the best new high quality live music. The live programme will be underpinned with digital workshops and learning and participation opportunities.

Inner City Music has been awarded £199,800 to develop a jazz touring network across areas of low engagement and provide support and training to local producers and promoters. It will also produce a jazz-based residency programme working in partnership with Jazz North.

IOU Theatre has been awarded £210,020 to create Rear View, an ambitious interactive outdoor performance which uses a converted bus as a mobile auditorium making it suitable for harder to reach locations without traditional art venues. This will be presented in collaboration with a range of festivals and partners across England.

The Strategic Touring programme aims to give people better access to quality work in a range of venues to reach more people across the country, targeting places with low levels of art engagement and those that rely on touring for arts and culture.

In total 11 successful applicants across England will receive a total of £3,972,698 for projects covering a wide range of activities. Read more here.
