We continue to work collaboratively with a number of leading Scottish actors, musicians, performers, playwrights and poets. This has included commissioning and touring original drama, publishing books and producing original pieces of music. The “Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas” is an ongoing collaboration with Edinburgh’s universities to promote academics’ wider engagement with non-academic audiences in a stimulating and unconventional format.
