Blind Dates 2019
Australian producers / artists – do you want to take your production to regional audiences?
You’re invited to a Blind Date with Country Arts WA and CircuitWest!
In conjunction with Fringe World Festival, Country Arts WA and CircuitWest are offering you the chance for a face-to-face chat about the opportunities and challenges of connecting your show with regional audiences. You may also have a chance to speak with a regional WA community presenter and/or venue manager.
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.
About Country Arts WA
Country Arts WA is the only Western Australian arts body with a purely regional focus. We coordinate and provide multiple presenting opportunities for regional communities from Bridgetown to Broome every year. We also support artists and arts organisations across all disciplines with funding programs and community arts development initiatives.
CircuitWest is a service organisation which represents professionally managed performing arts venues involved in touring in WA. CircuitWest connect people involved in the business of performing arts presenting – including producers and artists looking to tour their work to major venues across regional WA. A key focus for CircuitWest is regional touring. Accordingly, they partner with Fringe World every year to bring their members to Perth to see WA content with a view to getting work to their communities (so look out for them and the WA Made program).
