Want to make those projects a reality?

Join us for Crossover Scotland’s Inspiration Day – a packed programme of expert talks and networking opportunities created for you to meet other creatives, get inspired to develop ambitious new projects and get your creative juices flowing.

Writers, artists, filmmakers, programmers, composers, animators, designers, illustrators and digital creatives – we’re looking for a wide and diverse group of people to meet at Crossover Scotland’s Inspiration Day to explore new ways of working together.

The Inspiration Day takes place on 23rd January 2014 in Edinburgh from 11:30 until 18:30 which will include lunch, refreshments and drinks afterward. The event will feature inspiring speakers including:
