Information and advice event (Perth): Making local connections

 Registration is closed for this event
Join us to discuss the best ways of making a wide range of connections, whether it's key local figures and organisations, other local groups, suppliers, potential funders and sponsors, the media or even new audiences.

How do you find, get in touch with and build a relationship with the people who are important to your group? We'll discuss the ins and outs of making that first step, and how you can build a fruitful and lasting relationship. There will be opportunities to chat, ask questions, make connections and share experiences and advice. Making Music staff will share tips for talking to your local authority, and give you pointers on how to establish your own local connections.

More reasons to come:

  • Mingle with other music makers over a refreshment
  • An update on new resources and services from Making Music
  • Meet your local Making Music team and ask questions


Cost: FREE for members and non-members

Consultation topic Do you perform at events that you don’t organise?
Consultation notes_current Fell into 2 types of group. Choirs/orchestras organised own concerts (some joint with other groups) 2 – 4 times a year. Reasons for not performing at other events: too big, needed accompaniment, older performers don’t travel well, rural location, events at times that didn’t suit e.g. in summer break. One worked with local BID to perform in town square, BID printed concert programmes in return. 2 groups with different structure rarely staged own events, instead performed at gala days, ceilidhs, Tradfest Edinburgh, doors open day. They preferred; no risk, no costs, ready made audiences. Both groups city based (Edinburgh and Glasgow), a wealth of activity to tap into. None had taken part in Voluntary Arts Fest, Get Creative or MMD. Rural group interested in ‘play where you are’ idea of filming and sharing performance. Example shared of Royal Scottish Country Dance Society virtual festival , groups upload a video, take part in a competition.
