In its tenth anniversary year, the National Theatre of Scotland presents Home Away, its first ever international festival of participatory arts.
A five day conference of talks, discussions, workshops and pecha kucha hosted by leading artists and organisations, for anyone working in or interested in working in socially engaged, inspirational arts projects – creative artists, arts organisations, funders, policy makers, students.

Home Away also presents an evening performance programme, featuring two new productions each night, created by the people of Rio de Janeiro, Tomintoul & Glenlivet, Jamaica, Dundee, Brisbane, South Uist, New Delhi, Glasgow, Chicago and a transgender choir assembled from across the worldwide web.

At this Pecha Kucha we’ll be hearing from some of the newest and most exciting participatory arts projects from across Scotland, the UK and the rest of the world.
