Featured Artist: James McKenzie

James’ work encompasses painting, verse, collage, sculpture, installation, found objects, prose, collaboration and performance. Taoist and Buddhist influence is at the core of his work and spontaneity is essential to his methodology. He playfully explores themes which are often philosophically motivated and draws from personal experience. James graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone in 2017. He has exhibited, performed publicly and lead workshops widely in Scotland at galleries including the Royal Scottish Academy, the Scottish National Gallery, Embassy Gallery, generatorPROJECTS, Summerhall and Orkney’s Pier Arts Centre. In 2021, James looks forward to being the first artist to exhibit with Dundee’s Volk Gallery and to participating in Hidden Door Festival.

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.

Lyn x
