Development space, studio, meeting place, social network, online resource, creative hub – The Work Room is your comprehensive portal to the independent dance sector in Scotland, based out of a purpose-built studio in Glasgow’s Tramway.
We’re here to provide independent artists working in dance in Scotland with flexible, fluid, reactive support, as well as helping to strengthen exisiting networks within the creative community.
We believe that artists are important catalysts for social change, able to react and innovate far faster than any organisation could. That’s why The Work Room is governed by an artist-led panel: to enable Scotland’s dance artists to continue reaching and responding to their audiences immediately.
The Work Room was set up in 2008 at the instigation of a number Glasgow-based dance artists. Following a period of research and consultancy, our pioneer programme of residencies launched in January 2009. The Work Room is funded by Creative Scotland and the National Lottery.
Once a member of The Work Room (£18 per year) the members of the network can apply for residencies, host their folio for free on the site, access support, advice, workshops and information and become part of a supported and supportive creative community. Membership forms available here and for more information on residencies, please visit our website.
