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

In April, these informal and supportive sessions will be available to Aberdeen-based artists and curators, held by the LUX Scotland team at the Aberdeen Art Gallery Cafe on level 2. Up to forty-five minutes in length they are 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.

The sessions are aimed at developing a wide-ranging dialogue around your practice, including, but not limited to, discussing your work, exhibition possibilities, budget/​funding applications and production advice.

Saturday 9 April: 1 – 1.45pm meeting with Kitty Anderson

Saturday 9 April: 1 – 1.45pm meeting with Eve Smith

Saturday 9 April: 1 – 1.45pm meeting with Annie Crabtree

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

The meetings will take place in the cafe on level 2 of Aberdeen Art Gallery. Once you have booked via Eventbrite we will be in touch with you prior to the meeting to finalise meeting arrangements with you directly.
