XTRAX Shorts takes place in the context of the showcase of outdoor arts that XTRAX organises as part of GDIF in London. Here, artists and companies give imaginative pitches about outdoor projects in development to an audience of UK and international festival and event representatives, producers, and others working in the sector. XTRAX Shorts is followed by networking, providing those in attendance with the opportunity to find out more about these projects.

XTRAX Shorts supports artists by giving them the chance to present a project to people who can potentially commission, present or support it in other ways including in-kind or low-cost provision of rehearsal space, mentoring, or advocacy. For festival programmers and event producers, it complements the showcase programme by providing them with an additional chance to network, and find out about new work.

Projects presented as part of XTRAX Shorts have often gone on to be supported, commissioned or booked by those in attendance.
