Dealing with Brexit: Open Conversations – free monthly sessions

Our brand new monthly event Dealing with Brexit: Open Conversations, is designed to provide an informal space to encourage information sharing between peers around touring post-Brexit.

Registrations for our September event have now closed, find out about future sessions by signing up for our newsletter here.


These sessions are an opportunity to ask questions and to hear from professionals of the outdoor arts sector who’ve already had real-life experience of touring in a post-Brexit world and who can share learnings from their experience of navigating the new rules, helping to demystify Brexit.

XTRAX have been working to provide resources and information to UK outdoor artists and professionals on how to continue to work internationally post-Brexit, including a comprehensive guide, survey, list of resources and webinar for artists and outdoor arts professionals. See the ‘Downloads and Links’ section on the right to find out more.

We’re delighted to add our Dealing with Brexit: Open Conversations sessions to this list of resources.
