Please note, as of 16 March 2020, the ATLAS team is currently working remotely until further notice.
Ainslie Roddick, Artistic Director
Ainslie joined ATLAS as Artistic Director in December 2019. She previously worked as Curator at the CCA in Glasgow, organising projects with a focus on open access to knowledge and resources, and exhibitions that incorporated social spaces and conversation. She has been involved in lots of book and library projects, co-founding Publication Studio Glasgow, and the Glasgow Seed Library. She cut her teeth co-founding the duchy artist run project. Running helps her feel calm. She is interested in how ATLAS Arts’ projects can work over long periods of time with human and non human partners, expanding the way art is seen, making things pleasurable and complex, and thinking about plural futures.
Heather joined the team as Producer in December 2019. She is interested in how art creates shared experiences and fosters understanding between people and the environments we inhabit. Heather has worked for various art and cultural projects including for the Highland Youth Arts Festival, the Scottish Sculpture Workshop and UNESCO Biosphere programme. She enjoys the odd winter sea swim when feeling brave. She is looking forward to hearing and telling new stories around Skye and Lochalsh, and beyond.
Katharine joins ATLAS Arts as Programme and Administrative Assistant. Katharine is originally from Skye but has been off and about studying and working in a variety of roles across the Arts and within the NHS. She enjoys hearing people’s tales, being at sea and the idea of running the Glamaig Hill Race one day.
