In 2017, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland launched a new purpose-built learning and teaching complex as part of its 170th anniversary celebrations.
The Creative Campus project has seen an investment of more than £2million which has created a contemporary two-level rehearsal facility, increasing practice room provision by 50%.
The exciting new addition provides students of RCS with essential practical resources as they develop their potential. The project has created 27 acoustically-separated rooms for individual practice and one-to-one teaching and two large ensemble rehearsal spaces. The facility will support performers of all ages and backgrounds, from undergraduate students and the young performers of the Junior Conservatoire to lifelong learners who study at the Royal Conservatoire at evenings and weekends.
We believe that an inspiring environment is crucial to the student experience and this purpose-built space gives our talented students and lifelong learners a place to grow and develop as performers. Not only will it be a hugely beneficial practical resource, it will also further enhance our dynamic culture of creativity, collaboration and innovation.
The Creative Campus project has been financed through a fundraising campaign with support from trusts, foundations and individuals including The Robertson Trust, Garfield Weston Foundation, The Hugh Fraser Foundation, The Sackler Trust, PF Charitable Trust, Wolfson Foundation and the W A Cargill Charitable Trust.
