Where you Fae? Where we Gaun: Celebrating and Grappling with Arts and Identity in Scotland is a symposium which will explore the variety of routes taken by people in the creative sector, with a focus on supporting and celebrating diversity and identity within arts practice in Scotland.
Emerging and established artists and facilitators will present their own journeys, starting the discussion on how identity and artistic practice brings us all together. Together, we will develop our understanding by mapping the extraordinary journeys taken, creating a visual map as we progress through the day.
The symposium will begin at 1pm, where you can network with other delegates or visit the exhibition showcase, enjoying some light refreshments before you take your seat at 2pm.
Full programme of artists, key-note speakers, performers and facilitators will be confirmed by 14th February.
