Without Walls is the UK’s leading consortium of festivals and organisations dedicated to raising the profile of the UK Outdoor Arts sector.
Without Walls brings together artists, promoters and commissioners to make high-quality multi-arts outdoor shows – from the intimate to the epic – that tour to festivals across the UK and beyond. The consortium nurtures talent and skills by researching, developing, commissioning and touring innovative new work that regularly breaks new ground, enhancing the growth of the sector, and reaching large audiences, many new to the arts.
Founded in 2007 by XTRAX and four other arts organisations, Without Walls is now a network of over 30 partners covering the whole of England.
Since its inception Without Walls has supported the creation and touring of over 140 new shows. Many shows continue to tour nationally and internationally, contributing to the UK’s increasing reputation as one of the leading countries for Outdoor Arts in Europe.
