Come join us for our first event of 2019! This Justice and Arts Scotland event focuses on Rurality & Justice co-hosted with Fèis Rois.

The event will feature:

Fèis Rois – widely recognised as a national leader in music education. The organisation gives lifelong learners the opportunity to experience and engage with traditional music and Gaelic culture in a way that supports them in developing their social skills and inspires them to reach their full potential. The creative team from Feis Ros will screen a documentary about their ongoing music project in HMP Inverness and will offer an insight into the workshop techniques they implement within a prison setting.

Margaret McShane, Community Justice Project Manager, presenting about her work in the Highlands

Lou McLoughlan, award winning filmmaker, screens her film, ’16 years till Summer’, followed by discussion.

There will be a free lunch served from 1pm, refreshments throughout the day and an opportunity to network and meet like-minded people in the broader arts and criminal justice sector.

This event is free, just register a spot. Come and meet some of the Justice and Arts Scotland team and colleagues working in the arts in justice in the Highlands and Islands.
