This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

This opportunity comes from ATLAS Arts.

The event, at one of Edinburgh’s most resplendent buildings is part of Scot:Lands, a series of events across Edinburgh’s Old Town that celebrate the start of 2016 with the very best in music, art and theatre.ATLAS Arts is curating an afternoon of performances inspired by and made for the Isle of Skye as part of this festive event.

About the event:

  • Gaelic singer, Anne Martin, and vocal sculptor, Jason Singh, will headline an afternoon of Gaelic song, Indian Raga, electronica and beat boxing woven into a unique soundscape. This event follows a three-week research trip to India in which the pair explored the vocal similarity between Gaelic and Indian working songs. For this special event, Anne and Jason will perform new material that was written and recorded in India.
  • Alongside this will be an extraordinary intervention by acclaimed artist and composer, Hanna Tuulikki, and special performances by Leighton Jones and Hector MacInnes.

What we’re looking for:

We are looking for someone who is interested in writing about music, contemporary art and Gaelic culture, who will capture the experience of this unique afternoon of performances and situate BLUE SKYE:LAND within the wider Scot:Lands event and Hogmanay celebrations.

This bursary also offers the opportunity for the successful applicant to attend BLUE SKYE:LAND the wider Scot:Lands event and the Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party. There will also be a chance for the blogger to attend a special celebratory meal with the artists and the ATLAS team.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
