Coinciding with Stockton International Riverside Festival, Without Walls organised an Associate Touring Network partners meeting at the ARC, Stockton.

The meeting gave partners a chance to share ideas, discuss their audience development plan and outline their artistic programme, as well as experience the programme of Stockton International Riverside Festiva;, a Without Walls partners and one of the UK’s longest-standing festivals.

In light of Without Walls’ successful NPO funding application, the management team also outlined the network’s plans for the future and how the longer-term planning with artists, companies and partners – existing and new – will deepen the impact of Without Walls’ and the ATN’s work and will support even more people to experience great outdoor arts.

Partners went on to attend the festival and were able to see select shows from the Without Walls 2017 commissioning programme: Bingo Lingo by Wild ‘N’ Beets; Witness This, by Company Chameleon, VR Playground by The Thrill Laboratory; Baba Yaga’s House by Dizzy O’ Dare; Table Manners by Avant Garde Dance; Jukeboxes by Bootworks Theatre; Corazón a Corazón by Deaf Men Dancing; The Actual Reality Arcade by Matthew Harrison.
