SALON

SALON

Presented by Arts on Tour


SALON is an initiative to build relationships between NSW artists/producers and presenters: it is a small-scale, lo-fi conversation starter without the bells and whistles of a full-blown showcase. Artists/Producers may apply to present a short pitch about their work at the event. There are also facilitated networking opportunities and you will hear from selected venues about their programming streams.

ABOUT SALON

NSW artists, producers, and presenters, regional and metro, have identified a lack of opportunities for connecting and building relationships across the state, and Arts on Tour is working on ways to address this.

SALON is a platform for Pecha Kucha-style pitches from artists and producers to facilitate connections with NAPACA members and community venues around work.

SAVE THE DATE: Our next SALON is Wednesday 21 July 2021 at  ESAC.

THE DETAILS - HOW TO APPLY TO PITCH
