Call for Participants: Slow Touring Pilot Program

We are looking for artists and presenters who are interested in Slow Touring and who wish to carry out a series of pilot initiatives that will impact their own existing touring and/or presenting practices.

The Slow Touring Project takes inspiration from the wider Slow Movement (such as Slow Food and Slow Tourism) and aims to transform the touring sector, seeking to increase the engagement between visiting artists and the local community, increase artists’ and presenters’ capacity to take creative risks, improve artists’ wellbeing and financial stability, and reduce the climate impact of touring. 

For the current phase of this project, thanks to support from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Presents is partnering with Réseau SPARC Network, Debajehmujig Theatre Group, and Folk Music Ontario.
