Spoken word: inspired by islands, island life, and the meetings of sea and land
Really looking forward to a gathering to listen to writings inspired by island life, organised through the Stromness Writing Group. As part of an open evening of sharing, Harriet will read some of the writing she's done while sailing, including call-and-response exchanges with writers in Cumbria and Orkney. Venue and details TBC nearer the time.
Reflections on rocks, sailing, light, water and more ...
After our ten days sailing along the coast, exploring cliffs, caves and shorlines, and learning about the sea, the crew will be sharing geology-inspired discoveries, images, hand-made artwork and plenty of stories at the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness, 7-8pm.
Artist & Geology Talk, Lochinver
Delighted to be getting together with enthusiasts from the North West Highlands Geopark in Lochinver - and we'll be giving a talk in the evening.
Sail Britain Launch Party, Ullapool
You can't set sail without a party ... if you'd like to come and celebrate with us, talk to the geologists about what's making them so excited about the incredibly ancient rocks we'll be seeing, or get an idea of what might happen when you mix geologists, a poet, a photographer, a fine artist and a skilled skipper, come and find us in the evening while the boat is being readied in Ullapool.
Artist residency, sailing up the NW coast of Scotland
So very excited - we'll be joining a team of geologists and a fine artist on a ten-day sailing trip from Ullapool to Orkney, hugging the dramatic coast, creating as we go along. Not sure what the outcomes will be but we'll be sharing them at the Pier Arts Centre in Stromness when we arrive! The trip is being organised by Oliver at Sail Britain, whose Coastline Project is linking artists and scientists on the way around the whole of the UK.
The Millican Travel Collective
We're delighted to be among the presenters at this special event bringing people together to celebrate inspiration from the outdoors, and take a leisurely approach to sharing stories and talking through environment, place, sustainability, travel, slowing down, joy ... and lots more besides. There will be great food, a camp fire, and great company. Find out more and book through Millican here.
