Our aims

  • to increase access of quality touring theatre and performing arts in Dumfries & Galloway, year round;
  • to make it easier for companies to tour in Dumfries and Galloway;
  • to increase public awareness and interest in performing arts events;
  • to 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 & Galloway, to be promoted in partnership with member organisations;
  • have two open call-outs per year for our Support for Ambition 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.
