From DIY to DIT: Peer Presenting and Artist-to-Artist Touring, Residencies, and Resource Sharing

Join us for an interactive exploration of tools, resources, and successful models for peer-based touring and residency exchanges that empower ensembles and artists to host, present, and share with each other.. The session will have three components. We’ll start with a look at Connector, a new mobile app designed by NET to support artist-to-artist U.S. tours and residencies by matching up NET member artists/companies to make connections, host, and exchange with each other. In the spirit of “ensemble dating app meets AirBnB,” Connector aims to level the playing field and increase artists’ agency by putting opportunities literally in the palm of your hand using a community-based model that prioritizes generosity, relationships, and paid/trade/in-kind resource sharing. We’ll then hear from a few companies with experience as peer artist-presenters or as peer-hosted touring artists, about the added benefits, special considerations, and challenges they've experienced with this type of artist-to-artist, DIY turned DIT (Do It Together) touring/residency model. The session will then open up to a facilitated discussion for all attendees to share their own experiences, ask questions of each other and the panel, and brainstorm possibilities and connections.


Facilitator: Lisa Mount (NET Board Member; Artistic Logistics).

Connector Presenters: Claudia Alick (NET Board Co-President; Calling Up Justice) & Hannah Fenlon (NET Producing & Engagement Consultant).
