Our interactive exhibit has started its journey across Scotland including Resolis Memorial Hall on 23rd Jan and Celtic Connections on 1st Feb…
…Dates for its tour will be published HERE
So far it has travelled to Forres, Skye and Resolis and in January it will be popping up at Celtic Connections. It will continue to tour during 2019 taking in various venues around the region including Ardfern, Lochgoilhead, Oban, Coll, Findhorn, Inverness and many more…
In 2018, film makers Beth Chalmers and Jassy Earl, along with researcher, Kerry Duncan, travelled around the region collecting stories and pin pointing key milestones that track the heritage of the Network as well as the wider history of touring performers coming to the region!
This is your Epic Stage Story.
Their travels have formed an incredible collection of stories and archive material, which have been beautifully pieced together by Jen Kilgour to create a pop-up exhibition.
Stories about bus break-downs, unexpected audience participation, halls packed to the brim, cultural resonance and of course your communities!
We are inviting venues to host this exhibition for you and your communities or audiences to interact with. Its a super wee display, which folds out to reveal little interactive stories beautifully illustrated by Rosie Cunningham of Illustration, etc and designed and assembled lovingly by Jen Kilgour. There is a small screen (and headset) showing our film as well as plenty of fascinating archive materials on display – a playful, petite and informative exhibition, that sits neatly in any venue.
This might just be the first time an exhibition about touring in the highlands and islands tours the highlands and islands!…
Should you be interested in hosting the pop-up exhibition (note there is no charge for members looking to host the exhibition) please email Rhiannon to let her know.
