Lyra makes live performance with and for children and young people.
Since 2012 Lyra has been building a community of children and artists who create and produce world-class live performance and art in Greater Craigmillar, Edinburgh, an area of multi deprivation in Scotland.
Lyra is unique because all it's works, from its groups to workshops to events to productions, are focussed on working side by side with the youngest members of one of Scotland's most deprived, diverse and exciting communities and introducing these young people to the very best artists and practitioners from around the world. The relationship between the artists and children is always one of equality with children taking a leading and empowered role
We are based in Craigmillar, Edinburgh at the Artspace theatre and studio which comprises our office space, foyer area, a 100 seat theatre and studio space. Our studio and theatre spaces are available for hire please contact us for further information, rates and availability.
