On this page you can find out about current and ongoing opportunities through DART.
Please note that all opportunities are curated by Live & Local. We will make decisions as to who receives these opportunities based on our assessment of an artist’s, or promoter’s, ability to make good use of such opportunities for the benefit of rural touring sector, and based on our organisational capacity to meet demand.
OPPORTUNITIES – for performing artists & companies

Invite Live & Local to see your performance or work-in-progress
If you are inexperienced in rural touring and have a show or work-in-progress that you are developing (for rural or other touring), please get in touch if you would like a member of the Live & Local team to see your work and offer feedback. It’s best to give us about 1-2 months’ notice of performance dates. We may offer you a meeting with a member of the Live & Local team here in Warwick to offer you more detailed advice about making shows for, and marketing shows to, rural touring.
OPPORTUNITY – for universities/higher education colleges
Presentation on rural touring as part of performing arts courses
Live & Local’s role in brokering relationships between performing artists/companies and rural communities is part of the performing arts ecology that creates opportunities for artists to reach an audience and to make a living – and yet lots of creative people leaving higher education and emerging into the professional arts world know nothing about it.
Live & Local is therefore seeking to make connections with performing arts course in higher education so that we can tell your students about opportunities in rural touring and to encourage them to find out more. We want to engage with the next generation of theatre-makers, choreographers, bands, puppeteers, slam poets, string quartets… We want to start the conversation… Contact us to find out more.
