Residencies

For Artists

Welcome to our Residencies page, where you can learn about our current cohort of residency artists and their projects.

See below for info on past residency artists and projects.

If you have an idea you would like to share with us then please submit them via our New Ideas Portal which is open year-round to any artist/collective or company in Scotland, to pitch an idea or work for commission/development or production opportunities/support.

You can also join our mailing list to be kept up to date with the latest free and paid opportunities.


In 2023/24, we are hosting four residencies, focused on writers, artists from the Highlands (in partnership with Eden Court), artists working with communities in North Glasgow and disabled artists.

  • Our 2022/23 Residency Artists

Our 22/23 Residencies were focused on work that explored climate justice (such as climate change, natural environment, sustainability, conservation, communities on frontline/ being hit hardest with extreme changes in environment) and work that is joyful and uplifting for audiences.

We were also looking for ideas that had the potential to tour rural and remote village hall locations across the whole of Scotland and/or incorporated digital technologies to align with our mission statement to create ‘Theatre Without Walls’. 

Our 22/23 Residencies was supported by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
