This two-part session includes NPN's "Doin' It on the Road", which include the nuts and bolts of touring (contracts, budgets, insurance, tech riders, etc.) as well as an exploration of the nuances of touring (networking, what presenters "do," how do they make their choices, etc).  This second half is set up as a conversation with individuals representing various aspects/expertise of the touring ecology.
Each participant receives a printed touring toolkit, the NPN Partner directory, and access to a PDF file with sample contracts, budgets, and resources.
