National experimental music touring network
OUTLANDS is a new national experimental music touring network, championing the genre-resistant bringing adventurous interdisciplinary music to the forefront.
OUTLANDS developed out of a motivation to pool expertise and resources, to encourage diversity and accessibility, build local audiences, and to support engaging and ambitious interdisciplinary music productions across the country, and the organisations that strive to promote them.
The OUTLANDS network brings together ten visual arts and music organisations, independent venues and creative producers in eight regions, as the partners for its pilot phase. Network partners shall commission and tour six new, interdisciplinary productions over two years during 2018-19.
A free interconnected participation programme offers new experiences to audiences through workshops, open rehearsals and Q&A’s to shine a light on the artistic processes within experimental music.
