Become an Arts Live member

Arts Live is a new network of venues and promoters hosting performing arts events across Dumfries & Galloway to create a diverse year-round programme. We aim to be a supportive and trusted organisation that works in partnership with a network of venues and promoters to facilitate the programming of quality touring performing arts in Dumfries and Galloway.

The aims of the program are to:

  • increase access to quality touring theatre and performing arts in Dumfries and Galloway year round
  • make it easier for companies to tour in Dumfries and Galloway
  • increase public awareness and interest in performing arts events
  • be a trusted and supportive organisation that enables volunteer-run theatres and community groups to hold professional arts events.

We will:

  • Invite venues and promoters to be members of the Network.
  • Arrange supported tours in Dumfries and Galloway, to be promoted in partnership with member organisations.
  • Have two open call-outs per year for our guarantee against loss scheme, underwriting promoters against financial loss to promote quality performing arts.

Members will be able to access Tourbook, which gives details of a huge range or artists looking to tour.
Our website will be revised so members can upload their own events.  It will include the facility to be searchable by area, type of event or for a venue. This information will feed into a regular what’s on mailouts.
There will be networking meetings and supported go and see opportunities.
