Two creative projects have been taking place in the community led by the Gabrielle Barnby (writer) and Rebecca Marr (photographer). These projects have been encouraging work by staff and clients of our collaborating organisations. Our writing project has worked with staff and carers of dementia sufferers in partnership with Age Orkney and we have worked with staff and clients of Women's Aid, Orkney in our photographic project. The results of both projects will be available on this page from the start date of the Festival - 18th June - and can be browsed at your leisure. You can also see some of the poetry from our Writers' project in the windows of Age Orkney in Victoria Street, Kirkwall during the Festival. We hope that this is only the beginning of an ongoing relationship with both organisations and will be a continuing project.
Gabrielle Barnby has written a little bit about the process and how the project worked. You can read it on our Blog page here.
We'd like to send you regular emails to keep you informed on what's going on with the festival.
