In 2017 MANIPULATE Festival celebrated it’s 10th anniversary and the celebration was marked by a programme showcasing the work of Scottish based artists and companies. Artistic development is at the heart of what we do and we were delighted to provide manipulate as a platform for companies such as Tortoise in a Nutshell, Company of Wolves and Jordan & Skinner alongside artists Sita Pieraccini and Al Seed. In addition, through our Snapshots: Artists @ Work series and Testroom we were pleased to present the works in progress of a further 14 Scottish based artists.

Alongside the homegrown talent, we also hosted prize-winning productions created by leading companies from Belgium, Canada, England, France and Spain as well as two programmes featuring the best animated film we have screened over the last ten years.
