Research Results of Perform Europe

28 July 2022

Perform Europe came to an end. On 13 June, Perform Europe's Impact Event was held live in Brussels and online. You can watch the recording of the event on YouTube.

Between December 2020 and June 2021, Perform Europe explored and mapped the context in which performing art works have been presented across borders in the past few years. The "Research Results of Perform Europe" are published. The report contains an inventory of existing funding schemes and digital tools, as well as an analysis and prospective evaluation of the state-of-the-art of physical and digital cross-border distribution of performing arts works. The report identifies and analyses the current issues and disparities in the European system of performing arts touring and presentation, the gaps to be filled and potential to build on, indicating some solutions for bringing change.
