Performing with us

Brush stroke

On this page you can find out about opportunities to work with us as an artist or company. All opportunities are curated by Live & Local and chosen by local community groups. We work with artists and companies that have the capacity to engage positively with participating groups and their target audiences, and meet the creative, technical, and marketing challenges inherent in the rural and community touring sector.
