Rural Touring Agency was founded by Sheena Miller and Lindsay Dunbar.
Lindsay, founder of Play Pieces Arts and leading rural theatre innovator, has just completed the 2017/2018 Clore Fellow development programme for cultural leaders, and is currently involved in rural arts research.
Sheena has more than 14 years’ experience working in the arts in the Highlands and Islands (with Mull Theatre and subsequently Comar, on the Isle of Mull), as programme manager, tour booker and project support. After going freelance in August 2016, she provided project support for the Argyll Youth Arts Hub Festival, and A Moment’s Peace Theatre Company’s Common Ground, and booked tours in Scotland and Ireland. Rural Touring Agency was formed in April 2017.
