Producers can now submit applications to present touring exhibitions and showcase their projects at the What’s new in touring exhibitions and Project Showcases sessions during the next Ecsite conference in Ljubljana in June.

There are two special session slots on the Friday morning dedicated to touring exhibitions pitches.

This call will be open in two rounds; the first is exclusive to Ecsite members and the second will be open to the whole community.

Round 1: members only 31 January to 27 February

Round 2: open to all 12 March to 5 April

A subgroup of the Conference Programme Committee will be reviewing all pitches for exhibition presentations and process all the applications after the deadline of 27 February, excluding those that do not follow the criteria for this session:

1) the exhibition was launched in 2019 or will be launched in 2020

2) the exhibition has never been promoted at an Ecsite session before

  • Touring exhibition title
  • Start date of the tour
  • If the exhibition was pitched at an Ecsite Conference before, in what year was it presented?
