Throughoutthe year in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, many small companies work hard at touring round local community venues not always an easy experience. Every now and then, however, ideas spring up which attempt to improve the circumstances under which companies operate. One

such idea is the Edinburgh Touring Circuit (ETC). set up a couple of years ago and now officially recognised and subsidised by Edinburgh District Council and the Scottish Arts Council.

The aim of ETC is to ‘act as a forum where information and ideas are exchanged between venues and companies. . . and to fostera spirit of mutual co-operation whereby community touring will be able to thrive.‘

Similarorganisations in Glasgow provide for touring companies based in the West CANS (Community Arts Network Strathclyde) is based in Clydebank and operates through community centres in deprived areas, for example, and EECAF (East End Community Arts Forum) was set up in 1986 and collaborates with such organisations as the GEAR Arts Project and Dolphin Arts Centre.

Edinburgh Touring Circuit Publicists Duncan Low and Tony Reekie stress that it should not be regarded as an administrative body, but rather as an administrative base offering advice, experience and financial supportto locally based performing groups. Their pilot season commences on 17 October with several tours by local Edinburgh theatre companies (see Touring listings) and they hope that in time ETC will become an integral part of the Edinburgh community. expanding to fill any administrative and continuity gaps.

The next meeting of Edinburgh Touring Circuit is on Tuesday 22 November at the Netherbow Arts Centre, Edinburgh at 2.30pm, and everyone with an interest in local theatre is welcome to attend. (Carol West).
