Kin at the Belladrum Festival

‘Kin and the Community’ is an education project supported by the Highland Youth Arts Hub and Feis Rois, in partnership with Duncan Chisholm.

Inspired by Duncan’s ground breaking multimedia production, Kin, Duncan was appointed Artistic Director on two separate short film projects.  Applications were invited from young people in two Highland areas; Easter Ross and Wester Ross.  The successful applicants would ultimately have the opportunity to explore their cultural heritage whilst developing skills in research and ethnology, music, film-making.

Kin, Duncan’s award winning original film was a multi-media production created to celebrate landscape, language, tradition, community and family.  Duncan was thrilled to be involved in both of these youth education projects, giving the contributors the opportunity to follow his model and create their own community based equivalent.

Duncan will be interviewed by author and playwright Hamish MacDonald, ahead of  introducing both the Easter Ross and Wester Ross ‘Kin and the Community’ films on the Verb Garden stage at the Belledrum Festival, Saturday 5 August 2017.
