Our 2022/23 Discover and Develop 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.
