Platform 4:UK is a strategic programme designed to support the international promotion and export of UK outdoor artists. Supported by Arts Council England, it is designed to build on XTRAX’s existing showcase work and further help artists to make new international contacts.
The objectives for the project are to:
• Support the international promotion and export of UK outdoor artists
• Open up new market opportunities internationally
• Introduce artists to new touring networks
• Deliver a programme of training and development support for artists and equip artists with the skills to thrive in these new territories
To deliver this project, we will work with existing showcase partners, the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival in London and Out There Festival in Great Yarmouth; we have also been developing relationships with a number of street arts festivals in Europe and further afield, with a view to developing targeted initiatives aimed to support the promotion and export of UK Street Arts in 2016 and 2017.
