This August, the house team are heading to the Edinburgh Festival with 25 South East venue delegates and are eager to meet with artists and companies.

They are hosting an informal Networking Breakfast on Tuesday 20 August (10am to 12pm), with the ambition of sparking conversations and intentional relationships between artists and venues.

Alongside pastries, tea, coffee and vitamin C, there will be a panel discussion on both touring and making work within the South East. They will then introduce artists and venues and give you the space to chat and make connections.

Who are they looking for?
