Three professional development opportunities are taking place between Jan-March 2012. On 25 January, 21 practitioners from Somerset and Devon attended Releasing your Fundraising Potential training day in Taunton. Led by Joanna Ridout this one-day course outlined some very useful tips on successful fundraising. Participants left feeling inspired and more confident of their own needs and abilities. "A great day, feel I really learnt a lot in a short space of time. Joanna managed the session very well, keeping us on track with a varied and fun approach back up by plenty of hands on experience and common sense" said a participant.
On Sunday 4th March artists are invited to join Tangle Theatre at Ridgway Hall in Langport for Word of Mouth - a one-day workshop that will use drama, music and impro techniques, multi-lingualism and a range of classical and contemporary texts to unpack and explore the 'language' of theatre-making.

Our third event is On the Road. Taking place on Friday 9 March this is a day training, knowledge and skill share workshop for dance and theatre companies who want to know more about rural touring.
