Mixing The Colours Publication Launch
Mixing The Colours Publication Launch

The Scottish International Storytelling Festival is a ten-day celebration of live storytelling, oral traditions and cultural diversity, bringing together a large number of Scottish and international storytellers and musicians.

This year Glasgow Women’s Library are part of the Festival on Tour strand bringing audiences to Glasgow’s East End to fully celebrate its rich storytelling traditions and to ensure all can celebrate the magic of sharing tales. With the theme of Stories Without Borders GWL’s Mixing The Colours writers and performers share their groundbreaking stories of women’s experiences of sectarianism in Scotland. The Mixing The Colours publication is a historically important anthology of stories told with humility and sensitivity. Join us for a journey through generations as a child keenly observes her mother’s foreign tongue, an adult daughter feels the emotional impact of her rejection of her father’s values, and a dark-humoured tale of bonfire night and an elderly bigot’s comeuppance.

Book now for this exciting public performance with a fantastic array of writers and performers in our beautiful new space in Bridgeton.
