Red Note Ensemble Are Hiring: Creative Music Maker

Red Note Ensemble (www.rednoteensemble.com) is looking for a musician at an early stage of their career to join us for a fixed-term one-year, mentored role. We’re seeking someone who is a little bit obsessed about creating new music themselves, and making music with other people, to work with us on a variety of performance and community projects.

We recognise that many people haven’t been able to take up opportunities to pursue a career in creating music due to financial pressures of coming from a lower socio-economic background. For this reason, this post is designed to support the career progression of someone who has faced barriers because of their socio-economic background.

We are looking for someone who has:
• 2-5 years’ experience since leaving school. This may have been on e.g. an education/training course, a job, a caring or voluntary role. It doesn’t matter whether this was or wasn’t directly connected to music
• Shown sustained commitment to generating their own new music
• Some experience of working with music with community groups, but may have had no formal training

How to apply:
Full information and job pack can be downloaded from https://www.rednoteensemble.com/event/creative-music-maker/ . This includes full information on how to apply.

The Soul Traders Club

My name is Lyn Ray. I am a qualified coach and have over 25 years business experience. I work with smart women who want to build lives and business that work for them on their terms. I believe the working practices of many organisations do not work well for women, or allow them the flexibility they can require at different stages of their lives, and have experienced this personally. For this reason I am passionate about the opportunities that self employment can bring to women. I am starting a new initiative in January 2021 called The Soul Traders Club. It is a group coaching programme for women who are passionate about growing their businesses to allow them to thrive in their wider life.

It will provide the accountability to help you stay focussed on your goals and allow you the camaraderie of being in a group with other women with a similar vision for their lives.

The group will run on a Friday morning 9.30-10.30am over Zoom and begins on Friday 8th January 2021. There will also be a Closed Facebook Group for members to allow everyone to keep in touch, and to ask for advice from other members. I am offering a 4 week free trial in January. You can find more details about The Soul Traders Club and sign up for the free trial on my website www.lynray.co.uk. After the trial the cost will be £20/month.

Wishing you a very happy festive season and I hope to meet some of you in January.

Reflections – Willowbrae Window Wanderland

We are delighted to be bringing this fantastic event to our neighbourhood and with your help we will transform our streets into a magical outdoor gallery for all to enjoy!

An opportunity to remember and reflect on family and friends who have died.

On Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th November between 6pm and 9pm.

All are invited to participate in decorating their windows or wandering, or both!

The process of making and sharing an artwork or doing something creative to honour someone who has died is an opportunity to spend time reflecting on that person, starting conversations, remembering details and sharing stories.

Displaying and sharing that creativity with our local community in our windows gives us the opportunity to share stories further, and to brighten people’s evening in celebration of lives lived and remembered.

Our ambition is to turn the windows in our neighbourhood into an outdoor gallery at night, giving people the choice to view it in their own time, alone or with friends or family in small groups adhering to the government guidelines.

Our aspiration is that this event will inspire people to make time and space to think more about those who have died and are special to us, to learn new skills, to feel pride in art made, and to connect with local people in a safe way.

A couple of optional free online art tutorials will be organised thanks to local artist and neighbour Sam Rutherford (more details to follow), and these will be intended to inspire local people to make a portrait or image to describe their loved one/s.

Fancy taking part?

Taking part as a Windowmaker is FREE and everyone is welcome. You can make a display in the windows of your flat, house, business, school, nursery, car, campervan, shop – or in your front garden!

Please don’t feel intimidated. Your display could be as simple as a lamp, book, cut out silhouette or fairy-lights in a window.  Anything goes … as long as it’s family friendly.

What to do next:

Click on the orange ‘Take part in this event’ button to add your location to our map.

You’ll get a ‘Welcome Pack’ when you sign in and access to lots of inspiration for windows too

Tell your friends and neighbours and ask them to get involved!

RSVP to our Facebook event to get inspiration and ideas, and to share your stories if you wish to.

If you have any questions or would like to sponsor, promote or volunteer to help with this event, please contact heywillowbrae@gmail.com

With thanks to ‘Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief’ for making this event possible as part of the ‘To Absent Friends Festival’ held across Scotland from 1st – 7th November each year – a people’s festival of storytelling and remembrance. “Because dead ordinary people live on in the memories and stories we share”. For more information please visit: www.toabsentfriends.org.uk
