The purpose of Puppet Animation Scotland is to champion brilliant puppetry, animation and visual theatre in Scotland and internationally. At the very core of this mission is the support of creative practice in Scotland, and we are always looking for new ways to support creative ideas and empower artists.

We do this in lots of different ways, whether by directly funding the development of new projects, facilitating exchange and networking opportunities, offering exposure and experience through paid performance platforms or running bespoke skills and training opportunities.

We are committed to openly sharing our resources and expertise however we can, and are always open to ideas and suggestions of how we can better support the creative community. Please browse the links on this page to find more detail of the ways that we support creative practice.
