About Tracs (Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland)
Tracs is a support and development organisation for traditional arts and culture in Scotland. It facilitates the work of the Scottish Storytelling Forum, the Traditional Music Forum, and the Traditional Dance Forum of Scotland, based at the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
In addition Tracs leads, in consultation with the Forums, on shared advocacy, policy development, strategic relationships, programme initiatives and promotion, involving different aspects of Scotland’s traditional arts, culture and languages.
Tracs operates in a uniquely collaborative way appropriate to the diverse networks, that underpin Scotland’s arts of tradition locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
Within Tracs, the Storytelling Forum is the key body for advising on storytelling development , and for identifying key issues and opportunities. The Forum is run by a Committee elected by the members who are themselves storytellers or people with an enthusiasm and concern for storytelling in Scottish society. The Forum also has regional representatives who keep the committee abreast of developments across Scotland.
The Storytelling Co-ordinator leads on all aspects of oral storytelling development to assist the Storytelling Forum, the Board and staff management team in delivery of the organisation’s mission and key objectives.
