About this event

This event relies upon local experts and knowledge to inform the audience of artists and writers, with the aim of stimulating new collaborations between Irish and Scots who work creatively, to address and reimagine rural life (especially during the pandemic and post-Covid).

With this is mind, the following questions are posed:

  • What are the things that need to be reimagined?
  • What would make life better for regenerating the Scottish rural environment, its resources, animals and people?
  • Or making life more sustainable?
