Puppetry, animation and visual theatre are all incredible tools for igniting the imagination, breathing life into the inanimate, and for bringing about some serious fun. On these pages you’ll find information about the ways that we work with communities across Scotland, and also free engaging resources for you to use at home to get your family creating and making.

Play and creativity are an essential part of human life, and through the artforms that we support we engage with families and communities at all stages of life. Please use the links above to read about our various projects and how we are using these artforms as a tool to bring about wellbeing, creativity, emotional resilience and social cohesion.

If you would like to talk with us about an idea for a community project or would like us to deliver something in your area, please contact us on [email protected]
