Space/Time retreat for practitioners-lecturers working in drama training – 25-28 October, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Skye.


We are delighted to bring you news of an exciting Professional Development opportunity exclusively for SDTN network lecturers in October 2018. SDTN are collaborating with Magnetic North to offer Network lecturers a unique version of Magnetic North’s highly regarded Space/Time retreats.

This reflective residential retreat is for people who combine a professional drama practice with lecturing. Based on Magnetic North’s renowned Space/Time residencies, this long-weekend retreat aims to refresh participants through facilitated dialogue – built around a series of self-generated questions – with time for individual reflection and work.  It will be led by Magnetic North’s Artistic Director Nicholas Bone and Red Bridge Arts’ Creative Director Alice McGrath.
