AWUK Scotland launch event

AWUK Scotland | Launch

On Wednesday 8th May, around 80 people from across the Scottish animation, VFX and games industries congregated at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh to celebrate the launch of Animated Women UK Scotland.

The evening kicked off with welcome drinks and general mingling, followed by some (lighthearted) competitive “Networking Bingo”, where the winner’s prize was a highly-coveted AWUK membership!

We were thrilled to welcome Anna Gregory, AWUK’s Regional Coordinator, to the event. Making the journey north to join the launch party, Anna took to the stage to promote the ethos of AWUK and to encourage membership uptake.

Following on from Anna, Sueann Rochester, the AWUK Scotland Representative, expressed her desire to create a strong community of women in Scotland, outlining the future plans for the Scottish branch, including networking events, master-classes, industry panels and discussions- all in addition to accessing the London-based events. She went on to reveal that members could also access discounts for the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Move Summit 2020 and World of Film International Festival Glasgow.

The continued enthusiasm and support from company sponsors, organisations and volunteers has been brilliant. Thank you everyone! We have only just started, but we can’t wait to see how the Scottish branch develops and grows.
