Please bear with us and we'll keep you
updated as things become clearer.
We want to assure you that we are still available on e-mail should you need to contact us. The main email for enquiries is firstname.lastname@example.org, other emails are listed on the website. We can now arrange meeting in person (if appropriate) and we will continue conducting meetings via phone or video call.

Impact on our Programmes
We're keen, like the rest of the sector, to be back working in person. At present, we are prioritising online methods where it is not to the detriment of the work for the overall safety, health and ongoing sustainability of the wider network of artists we work with.
We are happy to arrange activity in-person where there is a specific reason why it cannot happen online and there is a process in place by which this can requested and discussed with staff.
Creative Scotland's Open Fund for Individualssupports the wide range of activity initiated by artists, writers, producers and other creative practitioners in Scotland. Funding of between £500 and £100,000 is available.
If you have any specific questions or concerns about our plans, please do not hesitate to contact Emma McKee, General Manager on email@example.com to discuss this further.
