Scotland’s traditional arts scene cannot be underestimated in its variety and vibrancy.
But it’s vitally important that we don’t become complacent in assuming it will be transferred automatically to the next generation.
The oral tradition and intergenerational passing on of songs and stories are in decline in our ever-increasing digital world.
However, this presents new opportunities to engage larger audiences with traditional arts through digital mediums for future generations.
What songs, stories, dance steps & seasonal customs should every child in Scotland know?
This was question which sparked the Gifting Every Child project, curated by storyteller Bea Ferguson, singer Christina Stewart and dancer Mats Melin on behalf of TRACS.
At a time where evidence of creativity in the classroom is being given a significant push – not simply as an aid to pass exams, but as a key skill benefiting children’s confidence – Gifting Every Child provides a perfect starting point for teachers, educators and youth group leaders to engage with the traditional arts, learning in fresh and innovative ways.
