Our policies, procedures and codes of practice cover all aspects of Puppet Animation Scotland’s structure, operation and activities. They align with current best practice and are integral to the successful and effective running of our organisation.

The development of artists’ creative ambitions and technical expertise is integral to everything we do. Each year, we provide a range of 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, to be able to offer a direct means for open, respectful communication, feedback, and discussion. Here are the five ways you can get in touch with us:

Email us or call us: for all inquiries, our email address is info@puppetanimation.org, you can also give us a call at +44(0) 131 341 4314.

Drop-in to our offices: Puppet Animation Scotland is based in Summerhall, Edinburgh. We are usually in our offices Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm, come and find us and say hello. If we are busy and you need to discuss something more substantial, we will arrange a mutually convenient day and time to meet.

A one-to-one meeting: Contact us info@puppetanimation.org to arrange a 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 and/or anything else puppetry, visual/ physical theatre and/or animated film related.

Ongoing Survey: This is your chance to tell us everything about yourself and your work, to make sure we provide the best support and opportunities we can. Fill it in now!
