oin us for the Lumsden Weekender, SSW’s annual open weekend where we share the work and ideas developed by artists on residency at SSW throughout the year. The Weekender hosts a range of workshops, talks, walks and performances for all ages to get involved in and enjoy.

This summer we supported a new residency programme, the Lumsden Residency, in which selected artists Anna Wolfe-Pauly and Dorian Braun, India Harvey and George Ridgway developed new ideas and research drawing on experimental play, Deep Listening and storytelling. These ideas and practices were explored in collaboration with Lumsden Primary school pupils and teachers, and will culminate in a series of interactive sculptures, making workshops and local walks presented at the Weekender.

Alongside this activity for younger participants, artist and performer Sholto Dobie will present a new composition, Hoolie-gool-oo-oo, which he has developed through the SSW x Counterflows residency. Based in Lumsden’s ‘Rhynie Chert’ quarry, Sholto will perform with an improvised array of self-built instruments and noise contraptions which will sonically explore this unique local environment.

All events are free. For the full programme please see below.
