You’ll get a coffee on the house and invaluable insights into regional performing arts touring from two of the state’s regionally focused arts organisations.

Each Blind Date is tailored to your needs. Please use our booking form to list in detail what you would like to discuss in relation to your show, your other productions, your company and touring regionally.
