Regional Arts Touring funding supports tours that provide access to arts and culture for audiences living in regional NSW.

Provided by Create NSW, the funding is available for tours of all artforms, including performing arts, music, visual arts, literature, history, museums and multi-arts. Applicants should demonstrate strong audience development and engagement strategies.

It aims to:

  • provide people in regional NSW with access to a high-calibre and diverse range of artistic and cultural experiences, no matter where they live.
  • support best practice programming in regional and rural facilities.
  • build audiences by encouraging and promoting regional and local support for arts and culture.
  • build the viability of NSW arts and cultural organisations by developing new markets and audiences.

Funding is available for a wide range of touring activity to regional NSW which may include but is not limited to:  

  • a Sydney-based dance company touring to three regional NSW destinations and delivering workshops with young people  
  • a regional NSW theatre organisation touring a performance to one Western Sydney and two regional NSW locations
  • an artist/curator from Western Sydney touring an exhibition to multiple regional NSW galleries  a band touring regional NSW to support an album release.  

You can apply for tours in development, however, you will need to identify the venues/regions in the touring itineritinerary and provide a rationale for the chosen tour regions. You can apply for works in development, which is when the tour may include local outputs such as workshops, professional development or engaging local performers. 

If you are a Sydney, Western Sydney or interstate-based organisation, 70% of your funding request must be going towards the regional NSW component of your tour.

For the purposes of Regional Arts Touring Funding Guidelines, regional NSW touring destinations includes all local government areas outside of Sydney, Western Sydney, Newcastle LGA and Wollongong LGA.
