Launching the Perform Europe project on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Thursday 28 January 2021 at 14:00 CET (Brussels, UTC +1) / 15:00 EET (Bucharest, UTC +2) / 13:00 GMT (London, UTC +0) / 8 a.m. EST (New York, UTC -5).

What if you had the opportunity to collectively reimagine international touring of performing arts works in a more sustainable, balanced and inclusive way? Prepare to hit the road because we invite you on an 18-month journey to test, discuss and propose a new support scheme for the performing arts: Perform Europe.

Perform Europe is an innovative and highly-anticipated project for the performing arts sector which will support experiments to find more sustainable ways for international - physical and digital - touring of performing arts works in all the Creative Europe countries. The overall aim? To design future support schemes for the sector.

The Perform Europe Opening Event took place on 28 January 2021 at 14:00 CET. We introduced the project’s guiding values and vision, told you about its future online platform and about the opportunities it will be providing for performing arts professionals from all backgrounds and horizons in all the Creative Europe countries.

Perform Europe is led by the main performing arts networks based in Europe through a contract with the European Commission.

Plenary Opening
The Plenary Opening will provide an in-depth overview of the project’s guiding values and vision, and present the opportunities it will provide.


"Imagine the Future" Talks
