March, April & May
You can see what's coming up across our projects over the next couple of months here...
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING UPCOMING DISTANT VOICES EVENTS
Given the COVID-19 situation, sadly we’re not going to be able to proceed with the premiere of ‘A Giant on the Bridge’ on 9th April at Queen's Hall, Edinburgh, or with the ‘Coming Home’ festival on 16th & 17th April in Glasgow.
However, we’re already hard at work re-imagining how we might share all the work we’re so excited about with you in other ways over the coming weeks and months. So, watch this space — more positive news will be coming soon!
Some of you have been in touch to ask if can make a contribution towards the ongoing work of Vox Liminis and Distant Voices which is much appreciated.
We would ask that you please see our current Fundraising campaign: CLEAR THE WAY
The Queen’s Hall are also accepting donations to help them cover their monthly running costs during this period of enforced closure: https://www.thequeenshall.net/donation-core-running-costs
IN TUNE AT HMP PERTH
In January, In Tune will begin in HMP Perth for the very first time! Donna and Lucy will be there once a week making music with Dads and families.
It’s always great to hear what it has meant to the Dads who have taken part. One of the Dads, who took part in both the song writing sessions we ran in HMP Greenock last year, let us know what his daughter thought of his last song:
“My daughter hasn’t stopped playing the last one so hopefully this one’s the same. She’ll love it. I know my wee lassie loves having the last song because it's from me, she really gets it, and I really appreciate coming to this and doing it. Thanks for having me here again. It’s just so different and I love what you get us doing. I’d do this every day of the week, every week."
The KIN Collective are also currently developing a zine with the brilliant Beth Shapeero. Keep your eyes peeled for more news on this in 2020!
Rosie continues to bring the LIMBO workshop to pupils and professionals across Scotland.
"A really informative and thought provoking session this morning with Limbo... Really made me consider ways to support children and families dealing with family members in prison." (Workshop Participant)

Unbound continues every Tuesday evening from 6- 8.30pm!
In recent months, we've had photography sessions with Beth Chalmers,
learned about vocal techniques with Donna Maciocia and focused on collaborative songwriting. We're always looking at new ways of getting creative!
