ABOUT THE PROJECT:

WILDTOPIA and Performing Arts Hub Norway together with Nordic partners has the past years collaborated promoting the Nordic present at Edinburgh Fringe. Seeing application deadline for Edinburgh 2021 coming up, we found it useful to get tips from UK experts when it comes to touring artists will need visas to perform in the UK from 2021. Also seeing that it is a good way of sharing info about our region to our UK colleges wanting to learn more about touring possibilities in the Nordics.
