What's on offer

What is on offer to participants on a Sandbox?

“I felt a real sense of support and a fantastic feeling of relief that people were struggling with the same questions that we were. It was also great to feel part of other people's projects, watching them take shape and asking pertinent questions to help them develop their work.”  Theatre Sandbox Participant
