The Connecting Places program does not generally offer remount fees as touring shows and workshops are expected to be ready to go. When calculating your Per Performance Fee, 

DO NOT include vehicle hire, petrol, accommodation, meals and incidentals or LAHA. These costs are covered by Regional Arts Victoria when you are on the road. Download our budget template for assistance calculating your fees.



The following section asks for marketing copy and other information that will help community presenters sell tickets to your project to their audiences. Here are some tips for writing great marketing copy:

  • Convey a clear message: keep it simple!
  • Never assume the audience knows anything you don’t explicitly explain to them
  • Watch your grammar, spelling and punctuation.
  • Address what audience members can expect to see, hear, feel and experience


The following section asks for links to your Dropbox folders and other social media channels.

If you have all media material clearly labelled and filed together in one Dropbox folder, you can submit one link to this folder (simply paste the same link into each box below).

The contents must be clearly named, noting the descriptions of requirements listed below.

If Dropbox is not suitable for you, please contact our Connecting Places Manager Bindi Green to discuss using an alternative file sharing platform.


This section asks for practical information about the project, the technical equipment and venue support required to present the work. Many of the Connecting Places venues have little to no equipment and are managed by volunteers, which means the touring party will hire, set up and pack down all the equipment unless otherwise specified.


Presenters that book shows via the Connecting Places program are given the option to purchase a Technical Package for $500, rather than providing the equipment themselves. The touring company will receive $500 for each venue that opts in for the package so that the company can hire the necessary equipment to take on tour.


You can provide this information by responding to the individual questions below, or you can upload an existing Technical Specifications document as an attachment. If you choose to respond with an attachment, it must address all the information requested below to be considered a fully completed application.

If yes, please upload these as part of your support materials and click 'next page'.
If no, continue to respond to the following questions. You can still upload any tech specs you have as part of your support materials to provide more detail.
