The National Theatre of Scotland is marking Scotland’s Year of Young People in 2018 by staging 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.

Youth Project Team:

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.
