Build / Maker

Two programmes designed to complement each other: BUILD is our commitment to delivering a quarterly programme of development activities, and MAKER is a membership with a host of benefits that make engagement easier and more accessible for theatre professionals.


BUILD is our commitment to delivering a quarterly programme of workshops, talks and networking activities. It is our invitation to performers, playwrights, directors and designers to lean in, learn and share the experience of making work as a community. The monthly BUILD programme is comprised of:

  • Workshops and Talks from an incredible array of directors, writers, casting directors, producers, movement specialists – with a mix of practitioners local to Scotland and from across the UK.
  • Networking and idea sparking sessions aimed at keeping your roster of potential collaborators growing in size and strength.

View and book our current programme of workshops here.

Some of our workshops have been allocated experience levels:

  • Beginner - No prior knowledge or experience required
  • Intermediate - Some knowledge of experience of the subject area beneficial
  • Advanced - Good familiarity with the subject area necessary


Great new work emerges from a busy community, with plenty of chances to meet and share ideas.
