Shetland Arts have created four new posts as part of a new initiative to involve local communities in events programming and promotion.

The four Community Promoters will each be responsible for a distinct geographic area of Shetland, and will work closely with Shetland Arts programming, marketing and events management teams to identify, plan and deliver artistic and cultural events in their local communities. As well as programming bespoke content for their areas, the promoters will also be involved with promotion of events related to other Shetland Arts activities, including the festivals programme.

Floortje Matthew, Programme Manager for Shetland Arts said; ‘This is a really exciting opportunity to create a vibrant and varied programme of performances to take all around Shetland. I’m really looking forward to working with Community Promoters who know the best venues and are passionate about bringing new cultural experiences to their community.’
