About the Network

Animation Research Network Scotland has been established to bring together researchers and practitioners working in education and the creative industries. Its purpose is to increase awareness and visibility of the breadth of work in animation and the many related creative industries in Scotland and beyond.


About Us

We are formed of a group of academics and PhD students with broad interests in animation – practice, research and developing connections with others. Our shared backgrounds cover 30 years of animation teaching and research with a long list of publications, invited talks, events and creative work.  We invite others with similar interests to join our mailing list for updates on events, news and research opportunities.
