Applications are now open for Backroads, with up to $10,000 available to professional productions touring to one or more independent or community-run venues in regional NSW.
Backroads aims to support the reach of professional productions to regional towns that do not have professional performing arts infrastructure. The initiative is best suited to compact, adaptable, low budget productions that would suit a community centre, old town hall, or small, independent theatre. Tours need to be self-sufficient, able to produce, mount and market their work in regional and remote towns.
Backroads is open to all artforms, and we welcome applications from whoever is taking responsibility for the production, be that an independent artist or producer, regional arts organisation, community group, local council, professional performing arts presenter, venue or theatre company.
