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, and over 70 venues listed in the Venues database.

Call for Handbook case studies
The Touring Exhibitions Group (teg.org.uk) is currently undertaking a full revision of its online handbook. The handbook is a key membership benefit, offering advice and models for good practice on all aspects of touring exhibitions. The updated handbook will be launched as part of TEG's new website in spring 2015.
To compliment the core text, we are inviting the contribution of case studies. Each case study should be 250-300 words and accompanied by one or more images suitable for the web. The deadline for contributions is the 6th Feb 2015. Submitting a case study is a good way of drawing attention to your touring programme or organisation; all contributors will be full credited.
Case studies on the following themes are sought:
1. Addressing barriers to access through touring
2. Touring exhibitions on a small budget
3. Audience development through touring i.e. examples of touring exhibitions targeted at a specific group e.g. families, children, teens etc.
4. Collaborative or partnership touring exhibitions
5. Commissioning new work to tour
6. Creative approaches to 2D and/or 3D design to tour
7. Learning packages for tour
8. Funding raising for touring exhibitions
9. Approaches to marketing touring exhibitions
10. International touring
11. Evaluating touring exhibitions
12. Retail and publishing to support a tour
We are keen to represent the wide range of innovative touring practice in the UK and further afield.
If you would like to submit a case study please email Charlotte Dew, TEG Handbook Editor (firstname.lastname@example.org) for full submission guidelines. Charlotte will also be pleased to answer any questions.
