Who should attend?
This workshop is geared to young, aspiring emerging artists interested in enhancing their touring knowledge. For the purposes of this workshop aspiring and emerging artists are those ages 18 to 34. Ideally, participants would have some touring experience, although it is not required.
Participate in a Pitch or Perform Session
Participants are invited to register for a Pitch or Perform session at the workshop. You will receive verbal, constructive feedback from our group of trainers. Often featured at industry events, five minute pitch or performs offer an unique opportunity to promote shows/performances to potential presenters (buyers). They are also a great way to break into new touring markets.
