Our partners

enLIGHTen is a partnership project, part of the Year of Creative Scotland. It couldn’t have happened without the enthusiastic staff at companies all across the city: dozens of organisations and many individuals have worked together.

Special thanks to Sara Grady, our tireless and amazing project manager for enLIGHTen. To Chris McNelis and all at NL Productions for illuminating work above and beyond the call of duty. To the animators and artists involved in the project: Tim Prochak, Jess Holme, Arezoo Robinson, Robert Motyka, David Butler, Tracy Foster, Conrad Molleson and Ben Allan at Pufferfish Ltd. To all the writers who contributed to the project. To Professor Tom Devine and Professor Ian Campbell, both were super helpful with selecting quotes. To Susan Robinson and Paul de Roo for creating our virtual trails. To Michael MacLeod on social media, Chris Scott on photography and Frances McNaughton on all things distribution, and to Claudia Monteiro, who got the ball rolling.
