Applications are invited for proposals seeking funding in support of initiatives that are of high artistic quality and that generally have a strong audience focus. Applications will be accepted in artforms listed above. Tours must begin between January 2015 and December 2015.

The Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme is open to applications from organisations and individuals. Applications which demonstrate collaboration / partnership between networks, consortia or other collective groupings of presenters are encouraged, particularly where these indicate a high degree of engagement with audiences and collaboration with the producing entity or artists.

Applicants in receipt of other Arts Council funding are eligible to apply, provided it is clear that the touring or dissemination activity for which funding is sought is additional to those activities for which Arts Council funding has already been offered.
