Networks are organisations that exist to connect people across the performing arts, encouraging collaboration, supporting professional development, co-ordinating programming and recognising excellence.
Examples of Networks include:
- touring schemes
- artform representatives
- accreditation or funding schemes
- advocacy bodies
- networking organisations
In general, Networks will:
- be a constituted organisation, business or representative body
- represent a clearly defined membership on whose behalf they work - usually via a membership fee, application process or accreditation.
- be looking to connect with and support their membership on Tourbook
Generally, Networks will not:
- be directly responsible for hosting or performing work (though they may support members to do so).
Network Accounts can provide great tools to work with your membership group, however, they aren't suitable for every organisation. If you are unsure whether your organisation would be best suited to a Network Account then contact us directly and we will be very happy to help.
If your Network also programmes or presents work directly, it is possible to create different accounts for each of these roles. Contact us for more details.
