Who is it for?

This workshop really is for anyone interested in helping us tell different stories of how we relate to the sea. No previous experience necessary. Under 14s to be accompanied by an adult.

The Workshop

This weekend workshop will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to work as part of a group to make a video that will end up being screened all over Scotland, with your name in the credits!

The finished film will be part of a new multi-art form project that aims to spark a Scotland-wide conversation about our relationship to the seas and oceans. The film will be toured in partnership with LUX and Regional Screen Scotland. Launching at Coast on Arran in June 2018, the tour will go on to Atlas Arts, Skye; Taigh Chaersabhagh, North Uist; Timespan, Helmsdale; DCA, Dundee; Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh; and to Barra, Ullapool and Gairloch with Regional Screen Scotland’s mobile ‘Screen Machine’. A final legacy documentary of the tour plus the film screenings will also mark Scotland’s National Marine Centre grand opening in 2020.
