Our Friday Forum event series was delivered in partnership with Visual Arts Scotland between April and July 2020. Each Friday Forum featured four contributors from a variety of creative backgrounds who showcased snippets of their work, gave virtual tours around their studio space, and/or provided insights into their creative practice.
Friday Forum was developed by Creative Informatics in partnership with Visual Arts Scotland, and in support of the Emergency Art Workers’ Support Fund (EAWSF) instigated by Visual Arts Scotland to support creatives facing a loss of income due to Covid-19. You can watch Friday Forum 4, 5, and 6 below!
