Various meeting times available
We offer free, informal and supportive advice sessions for artists and in September these online meetings (up to one hour in length) will be held by Julia Parks.
Julia (she/her) is a Cumbrian artist filmmaker who explores the interrelationships between landscapes, plants, people and industry. She works with experimental documentary forms often using 16mm film, archival footage, poetry and song. In 2022, she took part in a six-month residency with Alchemy Film & Arts, the resulting four interconnected films explore human stories around plants, animals and textiles along the Teviot and Tweed Rivers in the Scottish Borders.
Julia can advise on using 16mm film in projects (colour film, working with a film lab, plant based developers such as nettle, seaweed and coffee); working with archives (research, securing permissions) and approaches to filmmaking (research, collaborations, planning and experimentation).
In general, these meetings are to support artists working with the moving image who are based in Scotland and are no longer in education.
If you have recently had an advice session please don’t book another session for 12 months (This 12‑month interval between sessions is to allow us to support everyone we can).
Once you have booked via Eventbrite we will email you directly to arrange a video call for the meeting. After your meeting we’ll ask you to complete a short, anonymous feedback form so we can monitor how useful the sessions are.
