MAKING TRACS. Five ways to immerse yourself in Scotland’s Dynamic Local Culture! 1st September – 13th October at the Scottish Storytelling CentreActive 9 months, 2 weeks ago.
What makes Scotland Tick? Is it H2O, oil, our values or a bit of all three? Is our local culture vital to the mix and if so, what is it?
Over five Saturdays from 1st September the Scottish Storytelling Centre invites you to find out and become part of the creative mix.
SPECIAL OFFER – TWO FOR ONE
To ensure maximum participation on these unique days, the Scottish Storytelling Centre is offering one free additional place on a second workshop for every one place you book. Both workshops should be booked at the same time.
THINKING FOR OURSELVES: Scotland’s Radical Traditions explores the roots of radicalism in Scotland and how we interact with today’s issues. A participative and creative day with story, song, and discussion to inspire, with Andy Wightman, Ewan McVicar, Stuart McHardy and Eileen Penman.
CREATIVE PLACES: Celebrating Community digs into ways of activating, energising and supporting our local communities through story, song, heritage and creativity. Hot tips, insights and strategies from Ceilidhmakers, New Makars Trust, Scots Music Inspire Project and Scottish Storytelling Forum.
SCOTLAND SINGS invites the nation to get involved this autumn in a nationwide Singfest for St Andrews Day, the motto being – If you can talk you can sing! In preparation we invite movers, shakers and everyone willing to help make this happen to take part in a prep day that will inspire, animate and activate. All welcome! In association with Hands Up for Trad, and Education Scotland’s ‘Scotland’s Songs’.
LIVING MEMORY: The Arts of Reminiscence puts the creativity of older people where it belongs – at the centre of cultural and community life. What are the skills and approaches that can foster genuine participation? How can the arts enhance individual and communal wellbeing? This is a practical day of workshops and resource sharing for all those who work with or care for older people. In association with Life Stories and the Scottish Poetry Library.
FOLK DRAMA recovers Scotland’s almost forgotten folk plays, the Galoshins, and Robin Hood plays and games. No seasonal celebration was complete without these witty, riveting, and primal performances – a route into theatre for everyone, plus a great excuse to dress up! Come and enjoy the stories, music, dance and fun with Stan Reeves and Allison Galbraith.
