Celebrating Scotland's Year of Stories with a multimedia exhibition, Land of the Ravens is suitable for children of all ages. The event comprises 34 original paintings and an
animated film illustrating the Scottish international story, 'Jack and the Two Ravens' recorded from the world renowned Traveller storyteller Duncan Williamson (1928-2007); the traditional story, a variant of ATU 313 (the magic flight) is recently published in Williamson's new edition of Scottish Traveller Tales for Children - Silver Unicorns and Golden Birds (Edinburgh: Floris Books, August 2022). The new Williamson collection will be launched during the exhibition, and both events coincide with the first day of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival. The exhibition features the animated film 'Twa Ravens' - created from the artist John Slavin's original paintings of the Raven story - by the video projection artist John McGeoch, director of Arts in Motion based in the Highlands of Scotland. The film will be continuously showing on a small screen in an alcove opposite the exhibition wall with headphones. Opening night of the Land of Ravens exhibition will be the film premiere as a lage screen public event. Music in the film is provided by Scottish traditional music publisher Christine Martin based on the Isle of Skye and multi-instrumentalist Jack Evans. John Slavin is the narrative painter and landscape artist who has created a magical, mystical, majestic Other-world of dangerous mountains, torrential rivers and primeval forests for visitors to his Land of the Ravens exhibition.
