WA Regional and Remote Touring Fund

Thursday, 12 Nov 2015

The Regional and Remote Touring Fund (RRTF) is part of the State Government’s Royalties for Regions $24 million investment in culture and the arts and is being delivered by the Department of Culture and Arts.

The RRTF aims to:

  • Give regional communities a greater influence in selecting shows for their town or community.
  • Increase the number and variety of performing arts shows touring to regional communities, resulting in more opportunities to participate in arts activities.
  • Provide increased opportunities for local governments to activate venues and spaces.
  • Link with other schemes as part of the overall program’s aim to create viable touring circuits that include well-equipped venues in regional centres and smaller towns, helping to build vibrant communities.

The RRTF is a contestable fund that is now open to any WA producer or regional presenter of a ‘tour ready’ performing arts show visiting two or more towns or remote communities.

This includes individual artists; small, medium or major performing arts organisations; regional local government authorities; and Regional Development Commissions.

Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said the $3.1 million fund was designed to provide regional communities with greater influence in selecting shows for their town or community.

"This fund will increase the number and variety of performing arts shows touring regional communities," Mr Day said.

"Applicants will need to demonstrate that their tour is supported by two or more towns or remote communities in the State.  This will allow local communities to determine the types of shows they would like to see in their region."  

Applications open today and will be accepted from regional local government authorities, regional development commissions and Western Australian performing arts organisations, including major performing arts companies and festivals.
