On Thursday April 10th we welcomed the group to a full day of training at DanceHouse with consultant Heather Maitland.  All participants are responsible for the marketing of tours scheduled between July and December 2014 and the training is provided as part of their Arts Council Touring and Dissemination of Work award.  The 3 days of training will result in the creation of a tour-specific marketing plan for each participant.

North-South Touring is a new feature of the scheme and from Northern Ireland we welcomed:Carrie-Anne McAlonan from Aisling Ghear; Michael Bonner from Moving on Music and Eibhlin deBarra from Maiden Voyage.  

The final two days of training will be in May.
