Thank You Scotland: Room To Play

We're pleased to reveal the latest in a series of short films highlighting the breadth and depth of arts funding in Scotland.

Tinderbox's Room To Play featured alongside nine other artists and community-based projects in a specially commissioned film on National Lottery arts funding in Scotland.

Room To Play

Room to Play is an exciting new programme exploring interactive live and digital processes in music, art, performance and game-development.  A team of 13 emerging musicians, visual artists, game developers and other professions came together for 10 weeks to work with award-winning musician, sound-designer, game developer and sonic artist, Yann Seznec (British Composer Award for Sonic Art, 2015), as well as Edinburgh’s Tinderbox Orchestra, to develop a series of interactive musical and orchestral performances and installations.  These were exhibited and showcased at Hidden Door Festival 2016, Edinburgh Game Symposium at DARE 2016, and at North Edinburgh Arts.

Latest figures reveal that over £33.7 million of National Lottery funding was allocated last year (2015/2016) to Scottish arts projects.
