Making Space


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

As a Making Space resident, emerging artists are provided with the time and space to develop an original performance idea, and are matched with an experienced professional artist as mentor. The residency culminates in a work-in-progress presentation at a high-profile Scottish arts festival.
You can read about previous residents and their work in our Making Space archive.

Who Can Apply?

The residency is open to solo artists or small collectives aged 18 – 25, interested in making new performance work.
Any artist from any discipline can apply to make theatre work across any genre(s).

Scottish Youth Theatre is committed to creating opportunities for those who face barriers to the industry, and as such a number of the Making Space residencies will be targeted for young artists from certain backgrounds. For the other residencies, we welcome artists from all social identities and backgrounds, and are determined to remove barriers wherever possible.

We will be recruiting for exciting new voices with diverse and ambitious ideas to be Making Space residents in 2020.
