The rural touring project BLT was launched at the end of 2014 as an 18 month pilot, supported by Creative Scotland and Scottish Borders Council. Between April 2015 and March 2016 the touring scheme programmed 55 performances/workshops, 31 venues programmed via the scheme, supported 50 training and networking places and supported 5 volunteer promoters to 'Go and See' Edinburgh Fringe 2015. Since April 2016 Borders LIVE Touring is now part of an integrated Trust, Live Borders.
Funding has been secured via Creative Scotland to continue the scheme into 2017. It is the aim to grow as a result of the successful pilot. In response to the strong demand for support from the current membership Borders LIVE Touring plans to build on recommendations highlighted by an independant Evaluation conducted by Sam Eccles, develop a diverse audience base across the Borders, attract enhanced investment and work collectively as an active member of the rural touring national and local networks/community to provide the tools necessary for successful voluntary based promoters in the Borders to consolidate these relationships making them stronger and giving them opportunities to grow and have the confidence to take a lead in programming.
