Invitation:
Articulation Outdoor Arts in Scotland
Information and Networking Sessions

Articulation (Scotland’s advocacy body for the Outdoor Arts, Physical Theatre and Circus Sector) are delivering a series of information and networking sessions to connect Scotland based venues, local authority and third sector organisations with artists and freelancers working across the outdoor arts. 
As we emerge from lockdown and whilst social distancing measures are still in place it will be vital to take performance to public spaces and civic locations where audiences may feel comfortable gathering naturally again. The outdoor arts have the power to capture the imagination of a broad public that can act as a bridge to future attendance at building based arts programmes.

These sessions are funded by Creative Scotland.
