Creative Informatics: Traverse’s Challenge project

Traverse Theatre’s challenge is to create an online interactive experience that can help audiences, artists, academics, and other stakeholders visualise its global legacy, reinforcing the theatre’s unique position in Scotland’s performing arts and literary ecosystem in the run-up to Traverse’s 60th anniversary in 2023. The ambition of this challenge is to preserve, chart and interpret the historical – and ongoing – significance of Scotland’s new writing theatre, celebrating Traverse’s many achievements over the last 60 years.
