Saturday 29 May, 6pm, stairs going up to hall An exhibition of photos I’ve taken in Scottish woodlands, while doing conservation volunteering weekends with New Caledonian Woodlands. These weekends are a great way to get out of Edinburgh, meet new people, do some useful work and see amazing places. The photos range from imposing landscapes and huge trees to close-up details and tiny plants. They show the work involved in giving nature a helping hand, and some of the tools and techniques used. The exhibition will run for several weeks, so if you can’t make the opening party (or even the apres vernissage), you can still check out the pictures. Just without the free booze and nibbles.
Israel/Palestine is an interactive devised theatre project exploring the crisis in the Middle East through diverse texts, performances and conversations. We’re performing for and with diverse audiences at theatres, social centres and universities in England and Scotland — performing at the Forest on Mon April 26th, 7.30pm.
We’re not interested in taking firm positions or making definitive political statements: we want to use theatre to talk with audiences about the things which matter most: Conflict. Hope. Loss. Peace.
Each performance lasts 90 minutes. Entry is free, though a pay-what-you-can donation bucket will be shaken, with proceeds going to humanitarian organisations based in Israel and Palestine.
