Audacious Women Festival 2020

The 5th Audacious Women Festival will be held in Edinburgh on 20 – 23 February 2020.

The Festival, which encourages and supports women to Do What You Always Wish You Dared, includes a wide range of workshops offering women an opportunity to try out something new in a safe, supportive space. They range from the Art of Batik, through creative writing, to a Rope Access taster session.  There are two full day workshops:  Silver Jewellery, Jewellery in Action where, as well as learning how to make your own silver pendant, you will have an opportunity to hear about how jewellery can be used for social good. And secondly, Freda O’Byrne, Artistic Director of Tragic Carpet, (based in St Margaret’s House, EH7 6AE) is running an all day Visual Theatre workshop, and will introduce some exercises and games with the emphasis on fun and  mutual support. There will also be talks, exhibitions,  theatre and musical performances celebrating audacious women.

Full details can be found here!

Theatre Workshop for Women

Led by Freda O’Byrne, Artistic Director of Tragic Carpet as part of the Audacious Women Festival

Location: City Arts Centre Friday 21st February 10.30 to 16.30 £45

No drama, no texts but a lot of fun! We will get to know each other through theatre games and exercises with the emphasis on fun, mutual support and curiosity. Participants will learn about visual performance by working together supportively in groups and solo, exploring ideas through subtle movement exercises, improvising around themes and placing our work within the space in different ways. Prior experience is not necessary but it is also welcome. The most important thing to bring along is yourself!

This workshop is focussed on process and not on an end result, leaving us free to play with ideas and see where they go. We will be exploring creative exercises in a light and playful way, shaping the day to match where our enthusiasm runs.

Link Living Bake Sale

On Friday the 6th of December Link Living are hosting a bake sale at their 3rd floor office (next to the library) in St Margaret’s House between 3pm and 5pm.

All goods will be baked and served by their volunteers who are vulnerable young people between the ages of 16-25 who used to or still engage with support at LinkLiving, and who now also help us with our courses, peer education and mentoring in schools and other events.

All of the money raised will be used to pay for training, events and other things that will help the personal development of their young people.

Pop along for some tasty afternoon treats!

Christmas Makers’ Market Pop-Up Exhibition

5th December – drop off works to the gallery

6th – setup (Marcin will curate and hang all the artworks)

7th – the market and exhibition open to audience from 11am until 5pm

8th – all works need to be collected

Each artist will have to prepare their own labels with name, title, medium and price. Each artist can bring 2-3 pieces, however Marcin can’t guarantee that all of them will be showcased (depending on how much space will be available). The exhibition is a good opportunity for artists to promote their art so I would encourage everyone to have business cards next to their works with contact details. In case of any purchase artists will have to deal directly with the customer.  It’s a good opportunity to talk to potential clients. We don’t take any percentage from sales and there’s no fees for participation. The exhibition is for the tenants only. For any questions artists should contact Marcin via email or pop in to the office.

We require volunteers to help with the invigilation of both galleries, please get in touch if this is something you would be interested in.

Rendition Preview

Invitation To Edinburgh Palette

I would like to invite you to a preview launch of Rendition, a radical new work from Tragic Carpet Visual Theatre Company – Friday 13th September in Edinburgh, 10.30am-12.20pm.

Rendition is a potent and immersive installation which uses detailed, up-to-the-minute academic research findings from The Rendition Project to tell the story of one man’s nightmare experience as the first suspect to be taken into the CIA’s detention programme. Freda O’Byrne, artistic director and sole performer, uses an innovative mix of puppetry, soundscapes and theatre to visualise the human rights violations committed by US and UK governments in the aftermath of 9/11 – and explores the juxtaposition between extreme vulnerability and absolute power. See the trailer here.

In partnership with Freedom From Torture Edinburgh, the preview event will provide the opportunity to visit the installation within the gallery, meet the creative team and view the accompanying immersive performance. Tickets are limited so please register here.

“…a profoundly moving piece of total theatre… beautiful, exquisitely made show driven by a quiet but fierce sense of humanity and compassion”

Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman ★★★★

“At a time when we await the outcome of a Scottish police investigation into the use of Scottish airports for rendition, and after the UK Intelligence and Security Committee published a devastating report into the extent of British involvement in torture, many issues remain unresolved”

Professor Ruth Blakeley, The Rendition Project (It is anticipated that Professor Blakeley will be able to attend the preview and discuss these issues.)

Rendition will tour Scotland in autumn 2020. The performance is ideal for galleries, community spaces, studios and exhibition spaces, and can work in theatres too. Please get in touch for more information.
