We're thrilled to run a Directors' Group for emerging directors in partnership with the Traverse Theatre, supporting emerging theatre-makers and directors in Scotland. Participants have access to free JMK workshops, residencies and networking events, as well as the opportunity to apply for Assistant Director bursaries.

This group is run by our JMK Director Practitioner, Maria Crocker. Maria also runs our Directors' Group at Northern Stage, Newcastle, encouraging collaboration between directors across the two regions.
