Welcome....The Gist

One of the things that came out of the various meetings was the need for a centralised event listings. How’s this as a starting point? (name kindly supplied by Graham Main)
It’s a membership site. Any promoter, venue, artist can join and upload their own events. It then provides a public facing site, with events listed in date order, and searchable by location or keyword, that can be used to find out what is going on.  If its well-used we could tailor the functionality and look of it to fit our needs.
It needs is a bit of content, Go on up-load an event, let me know what you think.


  1. Well done Peter!
    Re the event - I'm trying to.

  2. What I love about this is that it came directly from the session on Friday, and no matter how structured we make sessions - artists and makers will always have a strong sense of what they want to achieve. Organic. Embryonic. Whatever you want to call it. I hope the creative industries see's the potential in having a region wide magazine


  3. It's so easy to add events and really user friendly. A great publicity tool and invaluable asset when it comes to programming.
    Spread the word and encourage everyone you know to use it!

  4. Thanks for the positive response! and to everyone who has joined up today. So far A'The Airts, The Bakehouse, Dg One, Thomas Tosh, BBS,The Commonty, and the Arts Festival are represented. There is the beginnings of a really nice winter programme there.

    Please do spread the word! Any linking, face booking, blogging or talking about it much appreciated.


  5. Sound idea Peter and Graham. I'll pass the word on...
