Making Tracks

Making Tracks 2020

This year we've had to drastically change the way we work due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We are grateful to Arts Council England, whose emergency support has made it possible for us to carry out a Digital Edition of Making Tracks 2020.

A Virtual Residency + Digital Tour

During our recent Virtual Residency, which took place via video conference, eight selected Fellows were given the chance to create new collaborative works, explore and develop strategies for environmental engagement, and receive professional development and career advice from a team of industry experts.

Having completed the residency, we're now heading off (or rather, staying put) for an eight week ‘Digital Tour’. The tour will happen 'in reverse'; instead of travelling to local audiences around the UK, we'll invite the public into the homes of our Making Tracks Fellows around the world. Events will be live-streamed (on Facebook and on this website) at 7pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, starting 21st July.

TUESDAYS | SOLO CONCERTS

Unique performances from each of our 2020 Fellows.

WEDNESDAYS | COLLABORATIONS

Premiers of new collaborative works, incubated during our online residency.

THURSDAYS | MAKING TRACKS IN-DEEP

This is your chance to dive deeper into the interests and musical cultures of our 2020 Fellows. Events will include talks and interactive workshops.
