TO ABSENT FRIENDS: SUPPERS OF STORYTELLING AND REMEMBRANCE

Scottish International Storytelling Festival
Training Venue
SISF
SSC

People who have died remain a part of our lives – their stories are our
stories, yet many Scottish traditions relating to the expression of loss
and remembrance have faded over time. The supper approach is a modern
take on a timeless concept, getting together over food to remember
people who have died. The suppers are an excuse to remember, to tell
stories, to celebrate and to reminisce about people who have died,
because people live on in the memories and stories we share. Led by the
founders of the To Absent Friends Festival and in partnership with SISF,
this participative workshop will explore the To Absent Friends Supper as
a means of recreating an evocative opportunity for storytelling and
remembrance in the Scottish tradition.
