TEG organises a number of events including talks, seminars and the annual Marketplace.
We also collaborate with other organisations on events related to touring exhibitions.
Please join our mailing list to be the first to be informed of future events.
Each year TEG holds a Marketplace at a different venue around the country. The Marketplace is open to everyone with an involvement or interest in touring exhibitions. The event encompasses exhibitions in all shapes, sizes and subjects, to fit all types of venue and audience. The aim of the Marketplace is to provide time and a suitable environment for people to make contacts, promote exhibitions, create a network for exhibition ideas, or simply find out what other organisations have to offer. For details about this year's Marketplace and to view reports of previous Marketplaces, see the Marketplace page.
TEG seminars serve as focal points to generate debate about current and proposed regional touring activity and to encourage practical activity amongst TEG members.
The seminar programme was launched with a seminar on 'Handling Sculpture' at Yorkshire Sculpture Park on 16 May 2006, followed by 'Libraries as Exhibition Venues', at Sutton Central Library, Surrey, on 31 July. Both seminars proved to be a useful networking opportunity for delegates to meet others within the touring sector, exchange ideas and to forge collaborations between exhibition providers and potential venues. The seminar programme for 2007 included 'Touring and Handling Crafts' at Bilston Craft Gallery on 23 April and 'Funding Touring Exhibitions: Grant Aid' at York Museums Trust on 18 June, and continued in 2008 with 'International Touring' held at the V&A on 19 March and 'Touring Exhibitions in Alternative Venues' at the Portico Library, Manchester, on 15 September. Seminars in 2009 included Funding: Sponsorship at The Brindley, Runcorn, and Developing Audiences at the V&A Museum of Childhood, London. TEG is delighted that TESS Demountable has agreed to sponsor a Professional Development consultancy in 2012-13, which will enable us to expand our training offer to include the basic introduction to touring that our members requested in a needs survey in 2012.
TEG will have a stand at this year's Show on 15th and 16th May 2013, in the West Hall at Olympia, London. This is an ideal opportunity for people who are not yet members to find out how far we can help each other. It's also an opportunity for members to speak face-to-face with (and bend the ears of) members of the Committee who look after TEG's day-to-day affairs between Annual General Meetings
