People who have died remain a part of our lives – their stories are our stories, yet many Scottish traditions relating to the expression of loss and remembrance have faded over time. The supper approach is a modern take on a timeless concept, getting together over food to remember people who have died. The suppers are an excuse to tell stories, to celebrate and to reminisce, because people live on in the memories and stories we share. Led by the founders of the To Absent Friends Festival and in partnership with SISF, this participative workshop will explore the To Absent Friends Supper as a means of recreating an evocative opportunity for remembrance in the Scottish tradition. As a follow-up to the workshop, attendees are invited to the To Absent Friends: Community Supper on Tue 7 Nov, at Broughton St Mary’s Church Hall.
