Touring Exhibitions Group
Touring Exhibitions Group – the national network for touring exhibitions
TEG is the professional group in the UK concerned with all aspects of organising and touring exhibitions. We are an independent membership network of galleries, museums, libraries, art and science centres and other organisations committed to exchanging exhibitions as a means of sharing ideas, materials and resources. We aim to tour exhibitions as widely as possible in order to extend public awareness, knowledge and enjoyment of historical and contemporary culture.
Through our website we provide access to:
- The latest exhibitions available to hire through our network of members
- Advice and information on every aspect of developing and touring exhibitions in the Handbook of Touring Exhibitions
- Opportunities for professional development through our seminar programme and annual Marketplace event.
- Links to professional organisations, suppliers and freelance services provided by members.
There are currently more than 200 exhibitions available for touring listed in the Exhibitions database.
