ABOUT PLATFORM 18 //
There are 17 platforms at Glasgow’s Central Station. If platform 18 existed, where would it lead? The Arches Platform 18 Award (formerly the Arches Award for Stage Directors) gives groundbreaking, risk-taking emergent artists the chance to show us.
Committed to supporting the UK’s best emergent theatre makers, winners are offered the unique opportunity to stage a fully-funded production at the Arches and the Traverse Theatre, with the full artistic and practical support of both venues. With previous winners including Nic Green and Davey Anderson, the Platform 18 Award is a vital step in the journey for artists setting off in exciting new directions.
