The ATLAS Arts' team is working remotely and can be contacted by email, telephone and various online platforms.

With much uncertainty right now, we’re taking time to work within our communities and be ready to give support to artists over the coming months. Our programme is being adapted on a case by case basis, and more detailed announcements on various projects will emerge as they adapt and grow.

We are finding it useful to talk to people from around different communities as well as from the visual arts, so please pick up the phone and let’s find time to share good practice.

March update:

Future Tellers subgroup

The first meetings of the Skye Climate Action Future Tellers Subgroup will go ahead at 6pm on 1 April and 3pm on 8 April. The original aim of these events was to create a collective brief for our Plural Futures film project. With so much anxiety about the future, it feels important to keep this event open as a forum for discussing and sharing ideas beyond just this original outcome – to learn from what’s happening. 

For now these meetings will take place via Zoom and we are also keen to be in touch with people without internet access or computers to take part on the phone. If you know of anyone without access to the internet please let us know, and we can add to our phone list. Click here to find out more and to book.

Plural Futures: Virtual Cyborg Parade

Our community meal, screening and cyborg workshop due to take place at Minginish Community Hall on 18 April has been postponed. In its place we are inviting you to join the Plural Futures Virtual Cyborg Parade. 

Cyborgs are fictional or hypothetical beings often found in Science Fiction. Taking any form, human like or not, their imagined powers and abilities can extend beyond human possibilities.

Create your cyborgs out of recycled material and things you find around your home, and imagine what super powers your futuristic beings might have. Find out how to take part.

Seeking a new Chair and new Trustees

ATLAS Arts is looking for a new Chair of the Board of Trustees, and 2-3 new board members to join our Board of Trustees. This is an opportunity for anyone interested in being involved in ATLAS Arts’ programme and strategic approach, giving support as we build a new vision and programme together in the coming years. More information on how to apply can be found here.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank our brilliant former Chair Professor Norman Gillies OBE for the dedication, wisdom and guidance given to ATLAS and our team over the last 10 years. 

We are also delighted to announce that Sue Pirnie has been appointed as acting Chair of ATLAS Arts. Sue is continuing to provide invaluable support to our team at this time.

This month we also wave goodbye to Caroline Winn, who ends her year-long term as Research and Development Director at ATLAS in March. Caroline has gifted ATLAS a strong strategic vision for the years to come and we wish her all the best in her future roles.

Art Night & ATLAS Arts Co-commission
Our co-commission with Art Night London, due to take place in June 2020 has been postponed. More information about the commissioned artist and future plans will follow in the coming weeks and months.

Keep in touch 
Keep in touch with us as you stay safe at home in the coming weeks. We are sending love and strength to you all.
