Additional Role for Screen Academy Chief

The director of the Scottish Screen Academy is to take on a temporary additional role, as acting head of the School of Creative Industries at Napier University, in Edinburgh.

Robin MacPherson briefly steps in for Professor Huw Davies, who is leaving for the University of Derby, as its new Dean for the Faculty of Arts, Design and Technology.

The Scottish Screen Academy is co-hosted by Napier and the Edinburgh College of Art.

Says MacPherson: “I will be adding the role of acting head of the School of Creative Industries to my Screen Academy director role until such time as the post is filled permanently.”
