Skimstone Arts produces touring theatre, music and exhibitions with diverse artists, researchers, individuals and communities, reflecting some of the stories, challenges and inspirations we face in society today.
We provide training for artists and peer mentoring for professional artists in our artist residencies, across a range of disciplines, to support them in developing their own practice and methods of working with diverse communities. We also deliver national Arts Award Bronze and Silver training for potential Arts Award advisers.
Our Young Artists Collective (YAC) share our studio to develop a strong arts practice and leadership through exploring the world, learning skills and studio management, performing and exhibiting artworks, and working with established international artists. The YAC band, Reality Boots, plays regular gigs and released their first album in 2014.
Skimstone Arts create collaborative theatre, music and art with artists and researchers, and develop artistic practice with diverse individuals and communities, to reflect challenges in society.
