National Artistic Programme


Scottish Youth Theatre's national programme is committed to cultivating the next generation of Scottish theatre makers, innovators and activists.

Participants across the country will collaborate with acclaimed practitioners who will inspire them to experiment, take risks and ultimately create groundbreaking theatre right here in Scotland.

Each programme is fully accessible delivered in areas across the nation and with no fee to participate and bursaries available for additional costs.
