Producing and presenting risk-taking work from local and international artists and companies, the building has boasted performances over the past two years from Derevo, The TEAM and Taylor Mac, hosted the National Review of Live Art and New Territories festivals and seen blistering performances from boundary-pushing artists and companies such as John Moran, Adrian Howells, Ontroerend Goed and Quarantine as part of 2010’s BEHAVIOUR festival, our annual celebration of the live experience.
The Arches is also Scotland’s leading provider of support for emergent artists and performance practitioners, providing a year-long programme of opportunities including Artist in Residence programmes and our two annual awards, Platform 18: New Directions and the Brick Award, as well as showcasing raw work from homegrown talent such as Nic Green and Rob Drummond in Arches LIVE, our annual festival of brave new work.
Our dedicated Creative Learning programme offers even further-reaching opportunities for development across a broad range of social groups, with events ranging from urban music production course Tigerstyle and the newly launched Arches Community Choir, to mentoring schemes, professional development projects and off-site performance work with diverse social groups.
