LUX Scotland offers free advice sessions for Scotland-based artists working with the moving image who are no longer in education.

In March, these informal and supportive sessions, up to one hour in length will be held by artist Tako Taal, aimed at developing a wide-ranging dialogue around your practice.

Sessions can involve any or all of the following areas;

-looking at and discussing your work and the direction it is taking

-talking over some possible next steps’ for your project, including advice on exhibition possibilities and thinking about appropriate organisations to research and approach

-advice on: developing your practice /​networks and self-promotion /​funding and budget writing /​production and project planning /​organising research viewing of works in the LUX collection that may be of interest.

If you want to share work or any texts (e.g proposals, funding applications) with us then we are happy to look at these with you during the meeting itself.

After your meeting we’ll ask you to complete a short, anonymous feedback form so we can monitor how useful the sessions are.

If have recently had an advice session with one of the LUX Scotland team, please don’t book another session for 12 months. This 12‑month interval’ between sessions is to allow us to support everyone we can.

If all of these sessions are fully booked, please email email hidden; JavaScript is required and we will add you to a waiting list.
