Without Walls is a partnership of 36 England-based festivals that work together through three networks:
The Without Walls Artistic Directorate (AD): Some of the UK’s most regarded outdoor arts and performance specialists. The Artistic Directorate annually invests commissioning funds into a programme of new outdoor shows that go on and tour across the UK and internationally. This process ensures an influx of new shows for the outdoor arts sector and helps nurture the talent and skills of those working in the sector.
The Touring Network Partnership (TNP): a network of festivals of all shapes and sizes across the UK in areas without regular arts activity. Without Walls works with these partners to create an appetite for outdoor arts across the country. The project builds off the impact of Without Walls’ highly influential Associate Touring Network.
The Creative Development Network (CDN): a group of festivals that Without Walls is providing mentorship and development support to in the context of helping to develop new outdoor arts programmes.
