These informal, hour-long sessions are for Scotland-based artists working with the moving image who are no longer in full-time education. These are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and are advertised through the monthly LUX Scotland bulletin. We aim to offer One-to-One Advice Sessions outside of Glasgow every other month.
We have over 800 SUPERLUX members across Scotland and we are keen to offer advice sessions to as many SUPERLUX members as possible over the coming months. So with this in mind, if you have had recently had an advice session with one of our team, please don’t book another session for 6 months. This ‘6 month interval’ between sessions is to allow us to support everyone we can.
These aim to develop a wide-ranging dialogue around your practice and can cover any of the following areas:
- Looking at and discussing your work
- Advice on developing your practice and looking at other works that may be of interest
- Advice on exhibition possibilities, appropriate organisations and events to approach
- Self-promotion, funding and production advice
Past sessions have taken place in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hawick and Inverness, led by LUX Scotland and LUX staff and invited artists and curators including Kathryn Elkin, Sarah Forrest, Shama Khanna, Liz Rosenfeld, Corin Sworn and Rehana Zaman.
You are welcome to bring material to be viewed during your session. Any examples of film or video work should be supplied on a laptop, USB stick or external hard drive, rather than through internet-based streaming platforms. Text-based materials, such as project proposals or artists’ statements, are also welcome although we advise not to bring too much.
