EMBASSY and Maruseppu Art Residency (MAR) are excited to announce our open call for SIMPLY BEAMING – a pan-continental moving image showcase between Scotland and Japan!

Alongside a number of selected artists, we’re inviting YOU (our members) to submit moving image work for our showcase. We’re looking for anything that flickers between 0.1 seconds and 15 minutes.

The selected work will be shown at MAR on 11th June and then subsequently screened in Hokkaido and Tokyo between 12 – 21st June. Additionally, there will be a screening event held at EMBASSY in July in which showreels of all the work will be displayed continuously for 2 days.

SIMPLY BEAMING is our third member-led event of our 2017/18 programme. Off the back of The Salon and our performance evening – Apple Bobbing – we are excited to present this event highlighting the moving image work of EMBASSY’s membership base.

If you are not currently a member of EMBASSY Gallery – or your annual membership has lapsed – you can join for £15 per year via our website: or, alternatively you can join the membership by paying in person in the gallery.

Deadline for applications: 1st June
