Opp: Take Part in the Edinburgh International Festival

Are you aged 16 - 26 and want to get involved in our flashmob? Come along and have the best time participating in a pretty exciting project at this year’s International Festival… Nice! What is it? We’ll cut to the chase. It’s the Year of Young People and we’d love to see you take centre stage to help bring the vision of composer Anna Meredith and 59 Productions to life. We’re inviting you to be part of a flashmob group that will perform some singing and basic movement as part of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Opening Event: Five Telegrams. Excited already? DROP US AN EMAIL TO TAKE PART - Julian.Almeida@eif.co.uk Sounds amazing! But what about the singing/movement skills required? I’m not exactly Beyoncé… No experience is necessary - as long as you feel passionate about it and are ready to give it your best, we can’t wait to have you on board. You will be coached by choreographer to the stars, Nathan Clarke, who has worked with the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen, Rihanna, One Direction, the Spice Girls and Fifth Harmony, alongside Edinburgh’s own Stephen Deazley who leads the Love Music’s Community & Junior Choirs. You’ll learn everything you need to feel confident and enjoy the process and the performance. Also, have we mentioned the costumes? Wait, it won’t be a mascot costume or something, will it? Not at all, we’re talking fashion here! Performance Costume students from the Edinburgh College of Art have designed and made beautiful outfits for the participants. But that’s all we can say here, as we don’t want to spoil the surprise for the audience of thousands… Thousands of people?! Yes! Our opening events in previous years attracted huge crowds keen to kick off Edinburgh’s festival season together. You’ll be playing an integral part in the event, but don’t worry – we won’t put you on the spot. You’ll be performing in a group of a couple of hundred like-minded people living in Scotland. All sounds great, just let me check my calendar. When is it that you’d need me? Aberdeen Standard Investments Opening Event: Five Telegrams is at 10.30pm on Friday 3 August 2018, so keep that evening free. On top of that, you'll need to attend at least three of the rehearsals on 21, 22, 28 July, and 1 & 2 August. See the exact times here. OK, count me in! How do I get involved? It couldn't be easier - just send an email to Julian.Almeida@eif.co.uk. You can also take a quick look at the summary of all the information about participating - http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/ws-eif/production/assets/headerimages/Files/Opening-Event-Recruitment-Info-Sheet.pdf?mtime=20180712095504 For further information, please contact Julian.Almeida@eif.co.uk or follow the link below >>>

Opp: A Cultural Strategy for Scotland [ Consultation ]

Following a Scottish Government commitment to develop A Culture Strategy, we want to hear from you about whether you think the draft strategy presents a firm foundation for sustaining culture? Scotland’s rich and varied culture, heritage, landscapes, languages, traditions and creativity are collectively one of the country’s greatest strengths. Scotland has an enduring world-wide reputation as a centre for ideas, learning, education, creativity and innovation. Culture reflects the past; challenges the present and shapes the future. Following a Scottish Government commitment to develop A Culture Strategy for Scotland, early engagement with individuals, artists and creative producers, communities and organisations during 2017 asked what matters most to people about culture in Scotland and what they thought the priorities for supporting culture are over the next decade. Why We Are Consulting? The draft Culture Strategy for Scotland builds on the feedback gathered during the engagement phase and sets out a Vision supported by a set of ambitions, aims and actions. The draft strategy commits to long term change through greater collaboration and integration across culture, communities and policy development to ensure that culture’s empowering and transformative power can be experienced by everyone. We want to hear from you about whether you think the draft strategy presents a firm foundation for sustaining culture into the future. We also want to hear about what you think success will look like for the strategy and how you are or can contribute to that success. When the consultation period ends, all responses received will be reviewed by independent analysts and a report will be published that summarises the results of the consultation. All responses received will be published on the Scottish Government website, anonymised where appropriate. The final strategy will reflect the views of contributors gathered throughout the consultation. For further information, please contact culturestrategy@gov.scot or follow the link below >>>
