Learning and Opportunities

Learning Points 

Learning Points is Vanishing Point’s creative learning and artist development programme. There are opportunities for professional artists and those in training, for audiences who are interested in exploring our work in more depth and for young people who are passionate about theatre and performance.

Advice Sessions
Do you have an idea or a project that you need some help with? If you are looking for advice or guidance about making or producing theatre, our experienced core team can help. To book an informal session, please contact: hello@vanishing-point.org

New Directions
In 2019, Vanishing Point launched New Directions, an initiative that will provide training, employment and opportunities for an emerging director based in Scotland. New Directions is an ideal opportunity for emerging directors who would like to gain experience of working on a professional production process and who are interested in Vanishing Point’s unique creative process. Details of future opportunities will be announced here and on our social media pages. 

Supported Artist
We offer one supported artist opportunity per year which coincides with the creation of our main production. The Supported Artist role is designed for the individual and we aim to offer an insight into all the various aspects of the company, including the work created in the rehearsal room and in the office. Our next Supported Artist position will be available in 2020/21. 

Student Placements
In 2019, Vanishing Point began working in partnership with the Scottish Drama Training Network (https://sdtn.org/) to offer a number of placement opportunities and learning events for production students attending education institutions within the network. The placements and learning events coincide with our main production and cover subjects including; costume design, lighting design, stage design and production management. 

Visiting Workshops
Are you a teacher (or a student) of a theatre or performance related course? We can deliver a workshop for your class about Vanishing Point and the way we make work.
