Economics of Touring Exhibitions: Models for Practice

TEG’s Economics of Touring Exhibitions: Models for Practice programme – supported by Arts Council England and TESS Demountable – has been developed to support organisations to adopt an effective economic model for touring exhibitions. It encourages a strategic approach to touring, focused on meeting the aims and objectives of the tour partners.

TEG asserts that touring exhibitions can ensure the sustainability of access to high quality temporary exhibitions to all, when the correct model is implemented. They are a key tool when responding to reduced funding for temporary exhibitions.

The three core programme resources – available to download below – provide analysed data, case studies and guidance to help select and implement an economic model for touring. TEG also delivers an Economics of Touring Exhibitions training seminar.
