Touring Forum

Our Touring Forum took place on 6 April 2017 in Draíocht in Blanchardstown. 

In advance of the meeting, we created an online survey with the following questions: 

  • In your experience, what currently works well about touring? 
  • What is the biggest difficulty you or your organisation encounters in connection with touring these days?
  • Is there one change that would dramatically improve touring for you or your organisation?

You can have a look at the collated responses in the presentation below.
