Jackie Wylie has been appointed as the Artistic Director of the National Theatre of Scotland. AEM International are delighted to have been involved in her appointment.
Jackie is one of the UK’s leading creative producers whose success as the Artistic Director of The Arches in Glasgow between 2008 and 2015 saw the organisation become a leading European powerhouse of cultural activity.
Jackie Wylie lives in Scotland and is currently Co-Director of Take Me Somewhere, a new city-wide festival, based at Tramway in Glasgow that will build on the legacy and international programming of The Arches. She will take up post at the National Theatre of Scotland in Spring 2017.
Jackie Wylie commented, “It’s an incredible privilege to be given the opportunity to lead the National Theatre of Scotland. Ten years ago it pioneered the ground-breaking model of a theatre without walls and since then it has combined world-class artistic distinction with a particular commitment to involving the entire population of Scotland. I look forward to continuing that spirit of innovation, building on the organisation’s many existing successes and relationships whilst also bringing in new voices, seeking out exciting collaborations at home as well as looking outwards, across the world.
We are fortunate in Scotland to have so many extraordinary, world-class theatre-makers and I’m looking forward to working with them – on both local and global stages – as we go forward.”
