When Scotland went into lockdown, Cluaran went online.
We created the atmosphere of a longhouse online. We used this as a venue for lovers of stories to gather and listen to stories every month. As well as the resident storytellers, Cathbad and Olaf, we invited a collection of guests to tell their tales. Now that Lockdown is easing and the sun has returne, we will be taking part in mor"In Person" events outdoors. Cluaran is also testing out new ways to use digital devices and online space to cross barriers.
Before Scotland was Scotland. We explore the roots of the people who have contributed to the country Scotland is today.
Nestled Between Hills and the Solway, Dumfries and Galloway shares a lot in Common with Norway and other Scandanavian countries. We find out how the sea links those that travel by boat.
From St Nininian to the present day, there has been a monastic presence in these Islands. We use this as a mirror within which people can sense spirituality and find time to reflect.
Whether it is the building of castles and the wars of independance, or the transformation of the kingdom of the isles into Gallowglass warriors you are interested in - we can bring the stories to life!
