WHAT IS SCOTLAND ON TOUR?

Scotland on Tour is a new initiative that will deliver multiple new concerts between 1st January and 31st December 2022 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Musicians, bands, artists and venues will be able to apply to a £750,000 Scottish Government fund to bring new and additional concerts to venues in Scotland next year. Towns and villages across Scotland will open new venue spaces or programme an increased number of concerts providing opportunities for professional musicians to generate new income. It will provide communities across the nation with world class performances on their doorstep contributing to more sustainable concert delivery without the need for audiences to travel into major cities and it will contribute towards rural economies through the creation of a nation-wide festival.

OBJECTIVE

We are seeking proposals for the design, layout and maintenance of our website. The website will function primarily as ‘what’s on’ guide for the project, with a calendar of upcoming concerts, integrating a centralised box office (to be provided by an appointed box office provider). We are open to creative input on how best to present this. The site will allow for artist applications to the project (the forms for which have already been built and are hosted externally) and will contain information and media on participating artists and venues/promoters/festivals. The appointed web designer will be required to maintain and up date the site as necessary throughout 2022.
