Culture, heritage and arts enthusiasts across the world are invited to tune into the CHARTS Facebook page to watch a unique live streamed showcase event celebrating the breadth of talent in Argyll and the Isles through an evening of unique performances.
Taking place on 14th September 2019 from 6pm—8pm GMT and hosted by celebrated Gaelic singer, broadcaster and Argyll native Joy Dunlop, the event will mark the official launch of the CHARTS network, a member-led charity working to create a sustainable and growing culture, heritage and arts sector across Argyll and the Isles. CHARTS connects artists over a vast area of 2,667 square miles, over 23 inhabited islands and the Scottish mainland.
Bringing together an exciting programme celebrating the growing culture, heritage and arts sector, the showcase takes place in the stunning setting of St John’s Cathedral in Oban and will feature a live link-up with a dynamic collaborative performance from the Isles. A host of acclaimed performers will take the stage, including Oban High School Pipe Band, a set by Eilidh Steel and Mark Neal and spoken word performances from Clair Tierney and Miek Zwamborn.
Audiences attending the event and joining in via the live stream will also witness the premiere of five short films, each capturing a different element of what working across culture, heritage and arts in Argyll and the Isles really means to people living and creating in the region.
TMF Members based in Argyll and the Isles can also get involved in a series of CHARTS Live Lab experiments and workshops, designed to empower creatives across the region to get to grips with live streaming and other digital media technologies in order to reach and engage potential new audiences for culture, heritage and arts projects.
Wherever you are in the world you can participate in these events free of charge, simply by following CHARTS on Facebook.
