The National Touring Selector (NTS), owned and operated by Country Arts South Australia, is an online networking tool/digital platform for the performing arts touring industry.
It plays a vital role in streamlining the communications between presenters and producers, as well as the selection of productions that are showcased at various national and state-wide performing arts touring marketplaces.
The site connects over 2100 creators and presenters from the Australian and New Zealand performing arts industry, including over 450 producing companies and 250 professional and community-run presenting organisations. It helps generate tours and performing arts seasons, with a particular emphasis on regional and remote venues and producers of tour ready shows.
In 2016/17 the NTS has hosted online and face to face markets ‘rounds’ including pilot projects for APAP (USA), APAM, Adelaide Fringe’s Honeypot and Adelaide’s inaugural ShowBroker, in addition to existing markets that include PANNZ Arts Market (New Zealand), WA Showcase and Country Arts WA’s Shows on the Go, Online rounds and ’Buy Now’ round.
If you’re a presenter/venue or a producer/artist wanting to tour work or establish new relationships with presenters, the NTS is especially for you. It brings together producers and presenters, getting productions in to venues around Australia and beyond.
