Event Details

ATLAS logo 

Are you an artist or creative business looking for inspiration?

Would you like one-to-one professional advice?


This event, hosted by ATLAS Arts, aims to inspire creativity, create connections and exchange skills. Here's a description to give you a flavour of what is planned, followed by the programme. 


Document Scotland – one-to-one creative discussion with Colin McPherson & Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert
Colin and Jeremy are always happy to view work by photographers just starting out, or those who are further down the line. They are willing to share their experience on disseminating work, how they get work out to galleries, to editorial clients and into a marketplace and to give general feedback on the photography itself. Colin and Jeremy have both photographed nationally and internationally for editorial, corporate and non-governmental clients for over two decades. They're particularly interested in photojournalism, documentary and portraiture work, but are always happy to be surprised.

Bring a selection of your work and lots of questions.
Duration: 20- 30 minutes in length (3-4 slots available)
Hot Tap Media – one-to-ones on crowdfunding with Rebecca Thompson
This is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in running, or planning to run, a crowdfunding campaign. Rebecca will discuss your ideas with you and offer advice on any aspect, including type of campaign, platform, perks, timing and promotion. Hot Tap Media is a band of talented and passionate innovators who have won multiple awards and nominations. A sense of fun and creativity is at the heart of all the work they do.
Bring your ideas and lots of questions and Rebecca will help make your crowdfunding dream a reality!
Duration: 15 minutes (6 slots available)
LUX Scotland – one-to-ones with Luke Collins
This is a fantastic opportunity to have an informal critical view of your film work by one of Scotland’s most prominent moving image organisations dedicated to supporting and promoting artists working in Scotland. Drawing on the resources and international network of LUX, activities of LUX Scotland include: the establishment of a new distribution collection of artists’ moving image work produced in Scotland; a new professional support programme for Scottish artists working with the moving image (which will include workshops, courses, funding and residency opportunities); new touring and screening initiatives; new support structures for artists’ moving image production and new public research resources.
If you would like to participate in this you must reserve your place in advance. Please contact Luke would like an outline of what you would like to discuss and a 5-10 minute video or excerpt from a longer work so he can prepare in advance. More information on these one-to-ones can be found here.
Duration: ¾ hour each (2 slots available book in advance)
The Poundshop – Design Around a Situation with Sara Melin
The Poundshop is one of the most exciting design-based businesses operating in the UK at the moment, so the opportunity to participate in a workshop run by one of the founders is not to be missed!
This workshop is not about creating new products but about rethinking already existing ones, and setting your own mark on them. The big question is how do you make something that stands out, that is well designed, and that is useful and helpful in everyday life?
Duration: 1.5 hours

Highland Print Studio – one-to-one creative discussion with John McNaught
John is a specialist in printmaking and photography and studio manager at Highland Print Studio. He will offer advice and guidance about printmaking and photography, whether you are an expert looking for a critical eye or a beginner wondering where to begin.
Bring along some of your work and enjoy discussing creative approaches and facilities available in Inverness.
Duration: 20 minutes (6 slots available)
Future Positive Studio – workshop with Jakub Michalski and Igor Termenon
Future Positive Studio help to create the right digital content for your audience. In this workshop Jakub and Igor will advise you how to make the most of your content online. With a truly visual emphasis they will help you understand how to produce the right content for the right platform.
