Welcome to the Spot-Lit Literary Tourism Product Incubation Programme (LT-PIP) and to our new way of working (for the time being).
This morning we held our first online Zoom meeting with the 5 businesses in Ireland that we will be working with during the programme.
- Artisan House
- Tertulia (a bookshop like no other)
- Kiltimagh Tourism Association/Mayo Celtic Holidays
- Cairde Sligo Arts Festival
- Yeats Thoor Ballylee Development CLG
We have set out and agreed our intended programme outputs, timelines, schedules and how we will work collaboratively and transnationally to engage with the Literary Tourism sector and develop Literary Products and Services across the partner regions.
We have planned a series of monthly engagement workshops, learning journeys, business advice clinics and individual mentoring supports as well as up to €10,000 innovation support.
A very productive first meeting!
Spot-lit Programme Vision is:“ To grow entrepreneurship and SME reach beyond local markets by developing and marketing literary tourism products”
