We are based in Edinburgh’s largest arts complex, Summerhall. As a Creative Scotland Regularly Funded Organisation with a national remit we are passionately committed to making it as easy as possible for Scottish-based artists, where-ever they are based, to contact us and arrange to meet us.

We are always interested to talk with artists we already work with. We are eager to make new connections with practitioners who would like to learn about our training opportunities, talk about their creative ideas and/or find other theatre-makers to collaborate with. Through our open-door policy we offer a direct means for open, respectful communication, feedback and discussion. We look forward to hearing from you.

Drop-in office hours: Come by our Summerhall office on weekdays between 9.30am – 5pm. Usually at least one of us is in so please come and say hello, we’re a friendly bunch. If we are busy and you need to discuss something more substantial, we’ll arrange a mutually convenient day and time to meet.

Free Cake Fridays: On the last Friday of every month the Puppet Animation Scotland team is available at the Summerhall cafe between 10.00am – 12.00pm. Anyone can drop-in and join us for a coffee, a chat, and free cake!

One-two-one meetings: To set up meeting with us to discuss an upcoming creative project or funding application, get some input on potential next steps for a new idea or proposal, or talk about future training opportunities or anything else puppetry, visual/physical and/or animated film-related, please email: info@puppetanimation.org with your name and a brief summary of what you would like to talk about. We’ll get back to you promptly to arrange to meet.

Ongoing Survey: We would also like to hear from you in more detail – Where are you based? What artforms do you exlore/use? What, creatively and technically, do you need and want? How much work do you create in a year? Do you tour your work? Please fill-in our online survey, engage with us and help us shape our future development opportunities so that they are as relevant and useful as possible to Scottish-based theatre-makers.

Once you have submitted your responses this information will be downloaded and saved in a secure database. Your valuable data helps to inform our future plans and the articulation of strategies and activities which support the creative and technical development of Scottish-based puppeteers, visual theatre makers and animators.
