Join us at SCAN Summit 2024

We’re thrilled to announce that our flagship annual event, SCAN Summit, is returning for 2024 with a day-long programme at Birnam Arts in Perthshire on Wednesday 29 May.

Titled ‘Who can impress the forest, bid the tree, unfix the earth-bound root?’, this year’s summit marks 21 years of the Land Reform Act Scotland, at a time when ownership of and access to land, affordable housing and green space are crucial in rural and urban Scotland. In the era of rewilding, carbon credits and global tourism, we will take inspiration from the surviving remnants of Birnam Wood to explore forest, field and stream.

Artists, thinkers, and writers contributing to this year’s Summit include Dr Nadine Andrews, Alison Scott, Frances Davis, Fionn Duffy and George Finlay Ramsay.

Tickets can be booked online via Eventbrite here. Tickets are free for SCAN members and £10 for non-members, and are inclusive of a vegan lunch. To join our membership from £24 per year, click here.
