We are delighted to present our first annual Rebellious Truth Lecture in association with the Department of Celtic and Scottish Studies at the University of Edinburgh.
Through presentation and live performance, the Rebellious Truth Lecture explores the importance of traditional arts and the role of traditional artists of all backgrounds and practices in addressing societal concerns: environment, sustainability, identity, social cohesion, health, understandings of economy, employment, education, and diversity.
Our first speaker is Karine Polwart folk singer, songwriter and theatre-maker who has used her performance profile to address humanitarian themes through music and carefully articulated spoken and written word. Karine is an ideal speaker for the Rebellious Truth lecture and we are delighted to welcome her ideas to this academic and public platform.
The evening will begin with a performance by School of Scottish Studies Traditional Artist in Residence Mike Vass.
