Stories & Spaces



Scottish Youth Theatre and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Fair Access.
Working in partnership to reach young people in rural and island communities.

14-17 years 
28-30 January 2023 


Stories & Spaces was a free opportunity for young people in Scotland’s rural and island communities interested in growing their theatre and wider artistic skills. The programme offered different approaches to performance-making through a creative exploration of young people’s stories and spaces.  

A two-day workshop, led by a team of creative professionals, guided 20 young participants from Mull Youth Theatre through installation-making, site-specific storytelling, photography, lighting and sound design, culminating in an installation at An Tobar at the end of January and beginning of February. 50 people from the local community visited the installation on the first day – creating a space where everyone was invited to help shape the future exchange of stories and ideas between young people living in rural communities in Scotland.
