Hacks for the Future

Jess Thom is a theatre-maker, comedian, disability rights activist and co-founder of Touretteshero (UK), who are bringing their project Hacks for the Future to the Highlands. They will create a collaborative work with a selected group of disabled young people from across Scotland, resulting in an inclusive extravaganza of installations, performances, discussions and workshops looking at how we can creatively shape the future.

Audience members are welcome to drop in and out of the space over the duration of the event.

Supported by Eden Court.


Hacks for the Future is part of National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof festival marking Scotland’s Year of Young People in 2018.

Ten productions will then take place in cities and locations across Scotland as part of the Futureproof festival in September and October 2018.
