Back in July, we put a call out to any promoter members interested in an exciting all-expenses paid trip to Canada to attend Contact East (http://www.contacteast.ca) in September 2018!
We can now announce that we have offered a place to Peter Vallance of Universal Hall, Findhorn and Kerry Baker of Island Music & Culture, Islay and our GET IN youth promoter programme. This is a great opportunity for them to access international showcasing and networking opportunities, which will in turn enable them to programme a diverse cultural offering in their communities. Since there will be delegates from other UK rural schemes attending too, who will be looking to programme interesting acts to come to the UK, it is, all-in-all a great opportunity to network!
We wish Kerry and Peter a fantastic trip and we look forward to following their experience online and hearing their tour recommendations – all of which we will share with our members in due course.
