We're looking forward to presenting our showcase of exceptional artists at this year's Edinburgh festivals. Full programme details to be announced in May. 

Here & Now is funded for two years, to deliver showcases in 2024 and 2025. Funding from Arts Council England was confirmed in December 2023. The Showcase 2024 programme has been curated, and Showcase 2025 will be programmed via an Open Call.
Showcase 2024 was curated via a nomination and selection process. Over 20 arts organisations and programmers from across England were invited to nominate performance works that they believe:

  • have strong appeal to international multi-artform venues and festivals presenting contemporary performance

  • which challenge ideas about what 'performance created in England' might look like, in terms of formal innovation, or who is making the work

  • which reflect the diversity of artists working in England

The final selection panel included international presenters who helped to identify the works they felt would have the strongest potential for international touring.
