Stories & Spaces is a free opportunity for young people in Scotland’s rural and island communities interested in growing their theatre and wider artistic skills. The programme will offer 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 artists and creative professionals, will guide participants through installation-making, site-specific storytelling, photography and contemporary performance, culminating in a body of work that will be shared at An Tobar, Mull in January 2023. Both participants and the local community will be invited to help shape the future exchange of stories and ideas between young people living in rural communities in Scotland.
The Stories & Spaces workshops will be devised and facilitated by artist and Head of Fair Access at RCS Jesse Paul, RCS Transitions Manager Morag Robertson, artist and photographer Jack Wrigley, artist and poet Tawona Sitholé and Scottish Youth Theatre Artistic Producer Annie Lowry Thomas.
