A training ground for aspiring artists aged 14 - 18 interested in advancing their theatre-making skills

Elevate aims to bring theatre-making opportunities to locations in Scotland where artistic opportunities are limited. It is specifically targeted at young artists who have ambitions to pursue a career in the arts but have little opportunity in their local area to develop their skills further. The programmes are delivered as intensive blocks during school holidays and are led by high-profile artists who collaborate with participants to create contemporary site-responsive performances.

Elevate has been run in Dumfries and Stornoway, with an upcoming project in Annan and more to be announced!
