The development of artists’ creative ambitions and technical expertise is integral to everything we do. Each year, we provide a wide range of training opportunities for theatre practitioners and animators of all disciplines who wish to engage meaningfully with visual theatre, puppetry, animated film, and develop further their skills and understanding. We are passionately committed to making it as easy as possible for Scottish-based artists, where ever they are based, to reach us and discuss their practice, projects, and needs.

This is why we have an open-door policy, where we offer a direct means for open, respectful communication, feedback, and discussion. So how does that work? Here are the five ways you can get in touch with us:
