Now & Next Application Advice Sessions: Artists Based Outside the Central Belt

Fri 22 May 2020 / 1pm–5pm

Online / Telephone, Scotland
Free, booking via Eventbrite
Book online
Part of Now & Next

These Now & Next Application Advice Sessions are dedicated to artists based outside the Central Belt as part of LUX Scotland’s commitment to supporting artists working throughout the country. Originally due to take place as in person meetings in the Highlands and Islands, Dumfries and Galloway, and the Borders, the sessions will now take place online either via telephone or Google Meets.

We ask that artists who are based in the Central Belt to book onto one of our other Now & Next Application Advice Sessions or to book onto one of our more general SUPERLUX Advice Sessions.


Now & Next aims to support Scotland-based artists from a wide range of disciplines to make high quality short audio or audio-visual content for BBC platforms, offering the opportunity to widen your networks, gain mentorship and support to develop your ideas and realise them to broadcast standard.

For each round of submissions, LUX Scotland offers Application Advice Sessions to discuss any aspect of the application process and project ideas. These 30 minute one-to-one meetings are aimed at addressing any questions or queries you may have about Now & Next, to discuss the suitability of the opportunity to your practice and ideas, and to discuss how best we can support you to make an application if you have any access requirements.

Google Hangouts has the option of captions and a chat section. We will be in touch with you prior to the meeting to arrange an online link or to exchange telephone numbers, whichever is most suitable for your situation, and to arrange any support needed.
