Still places available for the Symposium on Emerging Practice


Symposim on Emerging Practice: A Tramway event in collaboration with Vanishing Point & Collective

Fri 17 - Sun 19 February

The symposium is a cross art form weekend of provocations, discussion and presentation by and for Scotland's emergent practitioners and the organisations which seek to support them.

Questioning how to best support practitioner and artform development, the symposium will scrutinise structures for supporting emergent talent through examples of past and present practice in order to move on to discuss possible futures.
