As we gear up for Take Me Somewhere 2019, featuring two of the many projects we nurture here, we're taking a moment to give an insight into this little-known but integral part of who we are.

Our 'Tramway Supports' strand offers artists working in contemporary dance and performance a combination of residency time, rehearsal space, mentoring or artistic bursaries to evolve a new piece of work. 

The initiative aims to be responsive, tailoring support to the needs of individual productions whilst offering a testing ground for artists to challenge the boundaries of their practice. Tramway aims to plays a crucial role in supporting and strengthening the contemporary dance and performance sector in Scotland, providing a safe place for courageous artistic experimentation and creative risk.
