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 an opening two-week Virtual Residency (29th June - 12th July), eight selected Fellows will get 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. During the residency we will use videoconferencing platforms and equip all Fellows with the basic materials they need to take part.

Following the residency, we will carry out an extended ‘Digital Tour’ taking place over eight weeks. During the tour, our new network of Digital Partners (comprising current and former partner venues, international organisations, former artists and others) will use social media to share our digital content, including live-streamed performances and new collaborative works incubated during the residency. 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.
