Boost for Regional Performing Arts Tours

The Performing Arts Tours Boost project has granted three arts groups a share of $192,000 to tour 28 regional WA towns in 2015, made possible through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Program.
Country audiences in 28 towns from Broome to Albany and Fitzroy Crossing to Merredin will have the chance to see acclaimed shows in their local areas next year.
The music and theatre performances by Marrugeku Inc, Gina Williams and The Skeletal System, produced by Performing Lines WA will explore the themes of climate change, sharks and music.
Artists will work with local presenters to develop ways of engaging with the community through workshops and other activities.
Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said Royalties for Regions was providing $1 million over three years to the Boost arts regional touring program.
“Boost will provide regional communities with the opportunity to experience an increased variety of live performances that meet the artistic preferences of the region,” Mr Redman said.
