Award Nomination for previous Artsreach Director

Fri 2 Jun 2017

The National Rural Touring Forum (NRTF) has announced the shortlist for the first ever awards celebrating rural touring in the UK. Over 700 individuals nominated productions, venues, promoters, schemes, and staff for the award, and Artsreach are delighted to confirm that former Director Ian Scott has been nominated for a Special Award.

The shortlist will now go before an independent judging panel comprising Guardian journalist Lyn Gardner, writer and researcher Francois Matarasso, Ed Collier of independent producing studio China Plate and Beccy Speight, Chief Executive of The Woodland Trust. Judges are looking for brilliant stories, examples of good, enthusiastic and dedicated practice and forward-looking work, and we can't think of a better nominee than Ian.

On behalf of the Artsreach staff team, board of trustees, volunteer promoters, performers and audience members past and present we'd like to wish Ian the very best of luck.
