Be part of our next event – Skelling, Skeklers and Guising Exploring Liminality. Proposal call now live!

by Scott

The Taibhsear Collective (the team who organised Dreaming Bread and Skyrie Stanes, A celebration of Scottish Folk Magic and tradition) would love you to be part of our (now) weekend-long celebration being held in Edinburgh at the Scottish Story telling Centre on the 23rd and 24th of November.

The team are looking for proposals to create a day of diversity and dynamism. We welcome proposals focused on Scottish Folk Lore and tradition. Expanding upon, exploring, bringing to life and speaking to themes of liminality, Samhuinn, (Halloween), costuming, guising, (disguise if you like) and winter’s start.

The Taibhsear collective are looking for creative and out of the box ideas as well as more traditional proposals. We like to mix them together and see what comes of the juxtaposition.

There’s space for workshops, lectures, seminars, discussions, storytelling, performing, artworks, craft demonstrations, herbalism – anything really. We politely ask, please ensure your focus is on Scottish Folklore, folk practices and tradition.

If you’re not sure your proposal fits the brief, please do drop us a line to discuss.

Please bear in mind it’s also a day of celebration and humour interwoven with serious in-depth discussion. In other words, it’s not your typical lecture series … To be considered for the event please complete the proposal form. You can download it via the below button. Please return it to cailleachsherbarium@gmail.com no later than September the 2nd 2019.

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and we will be happy to answer them for you. Have fun with it and we look forward to seeing your proposal!

Tickets will be on sale in the coming weeks to the general public as will the first look agenda!
