Touring Green: professional performing artists
Sustainable Music Projects in Europe: To buck the trend of short-lived fast-paced music tours, this pilot project seeks to help professional performing artists develop sustainable approaches to touring and put them into practice in the form of a low-carbon concert tour. Besides sustainable travel, the idea is to promote exchange with local collaborators and make better, more intensive use of time spent in each location.
