We’re accepting submissions for our sixth Collider event!
You can find all the information you’ll ever need about Collider if you click here, but in brief, it’s a chance to meet people you might like to collaborate with in future. Monday 5 October is Selection Night, so please send in excerpts from full plays. At previous Colliders we’ve noticed that excerpts tend to lose out to self-contained short plays, so this time we’re asking for excerpts only – let’s give them a chance to shine! more

EDINBURGH SOUP is an innovative new event to help fund creative and community projects in Edinburgh. Guests pay a donation of £5 to attend. They get soup, they get music, but the focus of the night is the project pitches. Four invited speakers get five minutes to tell the audience about a project for which they need funding. No video, no Powerpoint, just a straight pitch. At the end, the audience vote on which idea they like best, and the winner gets the pot of donations. The winner then returns to a future SOUP to tell us how they’ve done.
