For many people, touring shows and exhibitions are the only means to experience art in their area. The Arts Council England's Strategic Touring fund makes it easier for organisations and artists to bring great art and culture to people across England.
£35,000,000 worth of funding is available between 2015 and 2018, including £750,000 a year from the Olympic Lottery Distribution Fund to support inbound international touring.
