ABOUT


 


Reweirding (Highland) is a series of initiatives, devised by sound artist Hector MacInnes as part of a residency with the Highland Culture Collective, 2021-2023.

Each initiative came about either as part of, or in response to, workshops, collaborations and chance encounters with people in the Highlands of Scotland affected by the criminal justice system, poor mental health, homelessness, or many other factors which have been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic; and each initiative in some way challenges or queries the romanticised, aestheticised and naturalised way the Highlands are framed, often to the exclusion or alienation of these groups. Participants have included inmates of HMP Inverness, customers at Cafe 1668, clients of Am Fasgadh or the Libertie Project. The first two initiatives are You've Heard Seagulls (a series of conversations about sound) and Lightning Roddy (a text-bot based listening service), with more to be added throughout the remainder of the residency.

An initial “Reweirding Proposal” by Hector (November 2021) can be read on the Highland Culture Collective’s blog here, and a fuller Statement On Reweirding on this website.

The Highland Culture Collective is a partnership between Fèis Rois, Lyth Arts Centre, Northlands Creative, The Highland Print Studio, Eden Court Theatre, and the Highland Third Sector Interface and is part of Scotland’s national Culture Collective, supported by Creative Scotland.
