Starter- National Theatre of Scotland

Starter is an initiative designed to seed ideas and develop an artists’ practice through the offer of eight residencies that come with a budget (£2500), in kind space and equipment, access to technical advice and expertise, and producing and dramaturgical support.

In 2019, six of the eight residencies will be targeted towards artists with specific practice, skills or experience, with two residency places remaining totally open. Starter residencies are not commissions or production opportunities, and all rights to the work generated will remain with the artists and their collaborators.

Two Starter Residencies will go live for applications every three months.
Whilst some residencies are specifically targeted, artists should apply for any and all residencies opportunities for which they are eligible.

You must:

  • Be resident in Scotland
  • Be over 18 years of age
  • Be able to demonstrate that you’ve undertaken a relevant artistic project (outwith formal studies)
  • Must be eligible to work in the UK and be able to provide evidence through the presentation of a valid passport or VISA if you are a non EU resident.
  • You must not: be in full time education

    Residencies can be used to:

  • Research and develop the initial seed of an idea
  • Further develop an existing unproduced project
  • Develop an artist’s skills and practice, or build new relationships
  • Artists are guaranteed access to working space at the Company’s new facility in Glasgow, but we will try to secure space at other geographical locations if required.
