Atlas Arts




ATLAS team

As a ‘fleet of foot’, flexible organisation ATLAS can shrink and grow to answer the needs of each specific project or production. As we approach our tenth-anniversary ATLAS is taking a new approach to developing its future.

Over the course of 2019-20, we will build on the local, national and international success of our first eight years by looking rigorously at new approaches in current artistic practice, and options for ATLAS’ development as an organisation. To do this we have initiated a Research and Development Year, enabling us to appoint exciting specialists with national and international reputations to identify and test new strategies:

Caroline Winn, Research and Development Director

Caroline is a successful leader of arts organisations with a track record of excellence as a project manager and strategic thinker. She worked most recently as Festival Manager for Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Visual Art and International Projects Manager for Festivals Edinburgh.

Prior to this, Caroline was General Manager of the Hebrides Ensemble, Youth Music Officer at the Scottish Arts Council and Project Manager for Soma Records.
