Showcases

XTRAX showcases are designed to support professionals working in all areas of the outdoor arts and facilitate meeting and networking; help artists and practitioners building contacts that can contribute to the development and touring of their work; enable festival producers, presenters and others involved in outdoor arts to see shows that they may want to present or support.
In 2020 and 2021, the global pandemic meant that our festivals could not proceed as planned – we organised events online, enabling us to stay connected in a “virtual” way.
In 2022, we are delighted to be organising showcase events in association with two major UK festivals, and we will be offering both an in person and an online programme.
As always, our showcases are friendly and welcoming events, creating opportunities for delegates to see great new work, discuss issues of importance to our sector and build networks in the UK, Europe and beyond.

We have a small budget to pay for hotel accommodation for festival programmers and bookers from outside of the UK to visit the festivals in person. If you would like more information please contact:
