Being Human Festival 2019


We are delighted to be part of this year's Being Human Festival (14-23 November 2019), a celebration of humanities research through public engagement. This year's theme is "Discoveries and Secrets".

Our team will participate with a series of workshops and other events, culminating in a "Creative Ethnology Discovery Ceilidh" at the Scottish Storytelling Centre. Under the theme of Discovering Home – Scotland, Europe, World, the Ceilidh will create an opportunity to experience and co-create the fluidity of the Traditional Arts processes across languages, moving between and combining music, story, poetry, dance and seasonal customs in an ambience of “radical hospitality” (John Berger) and inclusion. It will draw together various recent and continuing research projects by members of the Creative Ethnology Network, on traditional arts and culture in Scotland and Europe.

More details to follow.
