"For us it’s not just the physical space but the community that comes with it that has been really valuable. When we show up there’s already a bespoke mentoring that happens – both with the staff at 101, but even there’s a group working next door that’s been doing outdoor arts for 15/ 20 years & they’ve been able to advise us."

Ailin Conant, Artistic Director of Theatre Temoin
