Promoters Arts Network (PAN) supports its members to promote events in communities from Bute to Shetland, from the Western Isles to Moray, using all kinds of spaces : arts venues and theatres, village halls and community centres, converted churches, schoolrooms and barns.
We are here to provide advice, networking and support to individuals and groups who want to bring some of Scotland's best performances to their communities.
Working with promoters to make programmes more accessible to the domestic tourism market, focusing on a year-round 'Cultural Tour'. A dedicated marketing officer and a number of Community Scotland placements, will help to boost the impact and reach of rural touring.
PAN will work with 16-26 year-olds through a supported learning programme to give young people the opportunity to gain valuable skills. Working alongside existing promoters, they will programme, and promote, a tour aimed specifically at young audiences.
A joint project between COMAR, Argyll and Bute Council, The Heritage Sector, PAN and others this project will deliver and support a wide-spread, sustainable, programme of performing arts within Argyle and Bute.
PAN is currently working on an extensive new online platform which will utilise new technologies to make promoting and touring easier. The new platform will be launched in the Autum of 2012.
If you are involved in promoting, are interested in getting started or are a touring company with current shows then please do get in touch and we would love to help.
