As a Network that’s been around for 20 odd years, there’s a lot of know-how amongst our members and team.

Back in 2002, the Scottish Arts Council commissioned PAN* and Duncan MacInnes to write a guide to rural promoting called Don’t Panic. This publication placed the collective knowledge of promoting in a clear and concise format, and continues to be a key reference tool for new and existing promoters.

Over the past few years, we’ve been working to review and update this publication, alongside creating other resources on best practice, with the aim of launching an indispensable online searchable library for all those involved in rural touring. This means that our members can access dynamic, relevant and up-to-date know how whenever they need advice or guidance.

We’re almost ready to share this know how with our promoter members, so stay tuned for more details in the coming months!


Interested in testing out the library ahead of the rest of the Network? Get in touch with Rhiannon.

The Know-How will be for promoter members of the Network to begin with, but we also aim to provide access to performer members in the near future too.

*The Touring Network was previously known as PAN (the Promoters Arts Network) and Duncan MacInnes is still a promoter on Skye.
