ACE Strategic Touring Programme

The Arts Council funded Strategic touring programme is seeking applications from museums. The aim of the programme is for people across England having improved access to great art visiting their local area. This includes: 

  • better access to high quality work for people in places in England which rely on touring for much of their arts provision  
  • more high quality work to reach people and places with the least engagement  
  • more high quality work on tour connecting more effectively with people across a wide range of venues 
  • stronger relationships forged between those involved in artistic, audience and programme development on both the supply (eg artists, producers) and demand (eg promoters, audiences) side of touring  
  • a wide range of high quality work on tour including, in particular, more work by and for children and young people, and more work by and for people from diverse backgrounds.
