Join us after work, share ideas and advice, make new connections and find your next collaborator.

July's Conversation: The Power of Images

Images have the ability in conveying powerful messages which have the potential to evoke different emotional responses in the viewer. At this Creative Circles, we will be looking at how the past few years have led to more arts institutions becoming dependent on images to engage with their audiences.

About the venue

Sierra Metro is a creative space and gallery based in Leith. A place to gather, work and connect with exhibitions, coffee, workspaces and spaces to hire, everyone is welcome. In July, Sierra Metro presents Studio Lenca as part of this year's Edinburgh Art Festival.

Find them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Sierra Metro are kindly donating 7 free hotdesking spaces for the day of Tuesday 5th July, for anyone who would like to work at Sierra Metro during the day and then attend Creative Circles in the evening. Please choose General Admission + Hotdesking ticket, as spaces are limited.

About the speaker

Lynn has enjoyed a varied career path to get to Leith Theatre, with many experiences in Independent Film, public and private sectors, including a key role at Cultural Enterprise Office and leading on development, operations and business processes during her management roles at the gate cinema, Notting Hill, Brixton’s The Ritzy and Edinburgh’s Cameo Cinema.

Lynn has been in post since November 2018 and bore the immediate decommissioning of the boiler with good humour, something that goes far in a heritage building with few services. She has used her creative solutions-based approach to encourage an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit to grow within the walls, ultimately guiding the Theatre towards its new vision.
