Making Space


Offering emerging theatre makers the space and support to create new performance

Making Space is a residency programme for emerging artists aged 18 - 25 looking to grow their independent theatre-making skills.

Making Space residencies offer time, space and guidance, leading to a work-in-progress presentation at a high-profile Scottish venue or festival.


Who Can Apply?
The residency is open to solo artists or collectives of 2 or 3 aged between 18 – 25, interested in making performance work.
This can be across any genre: devised performance, new writing or re-imagining existing texts, solo performance, spoken word, physical theatre, dance and visual theatre, contemporary circus [although aerial work is not possible at this time], live art, durational performance... and anything in between.

Any theatre maker can apply – performer, director, poet, playwright, choreographer, designer, devisor, live-artist, performance artist... or something else. 


Our next Making Space residency opportunity will be advertised soon. Check back here or follow us on Facebook and Twitter where we announce all new and upcoming programmes.


You will be: 

  • committed, reliable and passionate about developing your idea
  • committed to completing the whole residency and utilising all the resources offered
  • open, flexible and hardworking
We are seeking exciting new voices with diverse and ambitious ideas to engage with us in this exciting residency opportunity. 
We want you to succeed, and we want you to ask questions, to use the space and work in new ways to develop your art and your practice.
