This year National Theatre of Scotland are offering two Discover Residencies, which are for discovering, doing research and the initial development of an idea or new project. The budget of £5,000 is available for each residency, which will cover lead artist fee (based on two weeks of their time), project costs and materials. These residencies take place over three months.
How the artist would like to use their two weeks of time is up to them (it could be a fortnight, or single days spread out across the three months). They could use some of this budget to work with actors and a director/dramaturg or for time to research.
