Invitation to theatre practitioners

National Theatre of ScotlandOn the 1st and 2nd of November, the National Theatre of Scotland Learn department is holding a number of sessions open to theatre practitioners who we have not yet worked with.

This is an opportunity for us to meet with artists who have experience of delivering workshops and creating activities and events in both school and community settings, in a multitude of art forms, in an attempt to broaden our pool of freelance practitioners within Scotland.

Whether you are a drama practitioner, visual artist, film maker, choreographer, costume, light  or set designer, we want to meet you, find out more about you and tell you a bit more about us.

The session will last for 3 hours and will involve practical tasks and team working, including a 2 minute pitch to the room in as creative a way as possible, showing your art form and skills. There will also be an opportunity to find out more about our previous and upcoming projects.

Places are limited to 15 per session and will be issued on a first-to-book basis with evidence of relevant experience in the field. If you are interested in attending, please contact Gillian Gourlay, Learning and Outreach Manager at  by Friday 19th October 2012, with your CV and 1st and 2nd choice of session to attend from the list below.

About National Theatre of Scotland

In its short life, the National Theatre of Scotland has already earned a significant national and international reputation for its daring and originality. The National Theatre of Scotland was established in 2006 and has created over 200 productions. Being a theatre without walls and building-free, the Company presents a wide variety of work that ranges from large-scale productions to projects tailored to the smallest performing spaces. In addition to conventional theatres, the Company has performed in airports, schools, tower blocks, community halls, ferries and forests. The National Theatre of Scotland creates much of its work in partnership with theatre-makers, companies, venues and participants across the globe. From extraordinary projects with schools and communities, to the ground-breaking online 5 Minute Theatre to landmark pieces such as The James Plays by Rona Munro - the National Theatre of Scotland’s aspiration is to tell the stories that need to be told and to take work to wherever audiences are to be found.
