Perform Europe Insights: Sustainability through innovation

Perform Europe Insights: Sustainability through innovation is the first publication of Perform Europe.

This report brings together the main learning points drawn from the Perform Europe process, since its start in December 2020. The Perform Europe process so far highlights the urgency to rethink the current system of touring and distribution support in Europe, in order to make it more balanced, sustainable and inclusive.

The report calls attention to the current issues and imbalances in the European system of cross-border touring and presentations of the performing arts, and articulates a vision on how to bring change.

Perform Europe is an EU-funded project which aims to rethink cross-border performing arts presentation in a more inclusive, sustainable and balanced way.
The project is an 18-month journey, which includes a research phase, launching a digital platform and an open call for producers and presenters of performing arts works, testing a support scheme, and designing policy recommendations. The ultimate goal of Perform Europe is to design a future support scheme for cross-border touring and digital distribution of the performing arts in Creative Europe countries.

It is co-managed by a consortium of 5 organisations:

International Network for Contemporary Arts, Circo Strada, European Festivals Association, European Dancehouse Network,  IDEA Consult
