Every year, Puppet Animation Scotland produces MANIPULATE international festival of visual theatre and animation, a globally-facing celebration of the very best visually led work, taking place in Edinburgh each year. We also present performance work and engagement opportunities around the country in our three partner communities – North Lanarkshire, the Outer Hebrides and Western Edinburgh. Through these programmes we have presented the work of hundreds of artists to thousands of audiences of all ages, in diverse locations around the country. To find out more about our work, including upcoming dates, what’s on, or how to present your work as part of each, please select the links below.


MANIPULATE Festival celebrates and promotes innovative, dynamic Scottish and international puppetry, visual theatre and animated film to its audiences.
