Ready to become the next generation of theatre innovators and instigators, a group of eight young people have been recruited to become National Theatre of Scotland’s inaugural Youth Project Team. The team of 14-26 year olds will influence and oversee not just Futureproof, but the company as a whole throughout 2018 by asking provocative questions of our work and practice.

The Youth Project Team are currently planning and producing the Futureproof Opening Event which will kick off the festival in Autumn 2018. This event will be by invitation only.


The launch event will open National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof festival marking Scotland’s Year of Young People in 2018. A major new festival of radical performing arts, created by young people working alongside renowned Scottish, British and international theatre practitioners.

Ten companies and artists specialising in daring new work will embed themselves in ten communities around the country, working with local groups of young people to co-create, design, develop and stage a piece of performance. Ten productions will then take place in cities and locations across Scotland as part of the Futureproof festival in September and October 2018.


Aged 14-26 years old? Love theatre? Sign up to our Futureproof passport for free and gain access to £5 ticket deals for National Theatre of Scotland productions throughout 2018.
