We are excited to have been selected as one of the ten UK organisations for the International Touring and Environmental Responsibility (ITER) Programme 2023.

20 artists and companies (10 from England, 10 from Denmark) will take part in a three-month interactive, online programme exploring key touring challenges, with provocations, frameworks, and practical approaches to reducing their carbon and environmental impacts. 

Participants will be invited to apply for funding in partnership with one another. Up to four projects will be awarded up to £20,000 to seed fund concepts originating from the programme.

ABOUT THE FUND

The fund is supported by a collaboration of partners including Arts Council England, The Danish Arts Foundation, The Danish Embassy and Julie’s Bicycle.  Travel and touring are essential to creativity and culture, but they come at a cost.  As the urgency of the climate crisis increases, so does the need for the Arts sector to fully understand its touring footprint, and to sustain a means of sharing art which supports our transition to a global low carbon future. 

Working together, this fund aims to support performing arts professionals in England and Denmark to tackle these challenges head on.
