The Rise and Shine festival is an event with hands on activity and open-air performances hosted by The Scottish Crannog Centre as we Rise and SHINE after Covid and the fire at the centre.
The festival brings together UNESCO chair for Refugee Integration through Language and Arts, crafts people, artists and musicians from across Scotland and Internationally, to celebrate sustainable craft and lifestyles, in order to make sustainable and resilient how we live today. The festival will focus on climate justice, the refugee crisis, and sustainable traditions, whilst bringing people together on the banks of the beautiful Loch Tay, to reconnect, reflect and respond, in a quiet space of craft and music.
Happening across the weekend will be live music, storytelling and theatre performances and workshops, map-making sessions, bookbinding, creative poetry sessions, as well as pottery crafts, jewellery, textiles, food tasters and more. Wolanski Pole and Aerial Fitness will be performing in the woodland walk, with live aerial acrobatics performances throughout the day. There will be tours of the museum starting every 45 minutes, and welcoming music from a Basque txalaparta, finishing with an end-of-day quiet time book reading of The Raven’s Nest by Sarah Thomas at 6pm on the Saturday. Some activities will be drop in, others will last up to an hour, and will run throughout the day. A programme for the event will be released soon.
