Self assessment for touring companies and venues

The following checklists should give both “touring”* companies and “venues”** respectively a good overview of factors to consider ahead of embarking on data sharing arrangements. Once you have looked at each item carefully and decided you are in a good position to proceed, you should be able to enter into the necessary negotiations with increased confidence, and in line with good practice.

As of April 2016, Data Controllers funded by Arts Council England will be expected to make data available to partners and visiting companies relating to audiences with whom they have a shared relationship. NPOs will be encouraged to follow the checklists.

* We use "touring" as a catchall for any company / artists operating in a space where data is being collected by a separate "host" organisation or venue.

** And "venue" for any hosting organisation who is Data controller
