Airts o Soons an Een

I am giving a short talk on Scots language and the collection of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery very soon. The event is part of the Scottish Storytelling Festival and will bring in my five years of art historical study and my five years of Scots language activism into one glorious half hour.

The details are below and you can read about it on the Portrait Gallery website.

Tuesday 29 October, 12:45-1:15pm



In this lunchtime talk, Ishbel McFarlane, theatre artist and Scots language advocate, will explore Scots language in relation to pieces in the National Galleries of Scotland. She will look at the cultural importance of Scots language – also called Doric, Glaswegian, Scots dialect, Scots slang, Lallans, and many other names – and how that linguistic culture interacts with visual culture: Part of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival 2019.
