XpoNorth 2017

07 June 2017 to 08 June 2017


The annual Inverness-based XpoNorth festival, formerly goNORTH, is Scotland's leading creative industries festival. A hot-bed of creative activity, XpoNorth takes place over two exciting and energising days and nights in the Highland capital of Inverness. The only festival of its kind in Scotland covering crafts, fashion and textiles; writing and publishing; screen and broadcast; and music. XpoNorth is a unique event in the UK's cultural calendar.

In 2017, XpoNorth will be held in venues across the city of Inverness, on Wednesday 7th and Thursday  8th June. By day, XpoNorth hosts a packed programme of panels and workshops featuring leading industry players in the fields of crafts, publishing, screen, music and more. By night, it offers a beguiling blend of Highland hospitality in the form of relaxed networking events, coupled with a free music showcase in intimate venues and a curated short film programme. All of this is free to access.

Part of the magic of XpoNorth is its unique atmosphere. The XpoNorth experience offers delegates across the creative spectrum an inspiring daytime schedule followed by the evening music and film mix. All set against a backdrop of the beautiful Highlands of Scotland in midsummer.
The work of XpoNorth in developing creative talent throughout the Highlands and islands of Scotland continues throughout the year. XpoNorth is funded by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and its director is former BBC drama producer, Amanda Millen.
