Emily Speed: Human Castle

3—4pm

 

A one-off performance work by Emily Speed for this year’s festival.

 

Through her wide ranging practise, Speed considers architecture not as an isolated built form but rather as a space to be inhabited, a container for human experience and memory.

 

Free to attend, but booking is essential. Performance will be in West Princes Street Gardens.

Performance and Panel Discussion: Ross Sinclair, We Love Real Life Scotland

4—6pm

 

Ross Sinclair performance

 

Over the last 20 years an important thread of Ross Sinclair's wide-ranging practice has sought to address the very particular nature of the individual, collective and national identities of the small, damp Northern-European nations sometimes known as Scotland. 

 

Join the artist and a range of speakers for a performance and discussion to celebrate the launch of Sinclair’s book investigating the heritage of the Gordons and other Scottish Incidences.

 

Panel speakers include Craig Richardson (Northumbria University), David McCrone (author of Scotland the Brand) and Claudia Zeiske (Deveron Arts).
