@gerrigale when I ran a site for a community arts organisation I had resources pages which were primarily links to venues and artists and they ranked very well, often ahead of the artists' own sites.
I had some initial problems with this and I am not sure which of the several changes that I made actually did the business but one was to ensure that I didn't just have a list of linked names. Rather each link had some unlinked descriptive text beside it.
This was all over 5 years ago so G have probably changed things several times since then!
