Fri 26 – Sun 28 March
We’ve been plotting and planning for the past month and finally we can let you know about our BACK ONLINE event of sessions, discussions and workshops at the end of March.
Looking back to before Christmas we were really fortunate to be able to deliver face to face CashBack sessions at Eden Court (which was a real boost for everyone). We had everything crossed for being in the same situation sooner, however keeping everyone safe at home has been what we’ve all had to do lately. To keep our brains from turning to mush (especially mine) we’ve come up with 3 days of films, chat and music that we hope you’ll find some inspiration in.
Click here to access the booking form.
In the booking form you will find more detail on all the sessions - you can pick and choose what you want to do and you don’t have to be in full workshop mode either as some events are more about being the audience and enjoying some tunes or listening to an interview.
Deep breath, here’s what’s happening…
On Friday we start with a film and a Q&A focused on LGBTQIA+ Lives on Screen. A new group and space for young people to dream big and be inspired. Then on Friday evening it’s party night with Hip Hop and Electronic setting the tone for performances and tunes by young artists....this is a watch and listen event so you just need to tune into the CashBack Highlands Facebook or twitch page (we’ll send all the links you need once you’ve signed up!)
On Saturday afternoon we have three events hosted by film maker and Cashback alumni Callum Macarthur, starting with a live chat and Q&A with Emma Reeves, the writer behind My Mum Tracy Beaker amongst many other shows for TV (including The Demon Headmaster and The Worst Witch)! If you have a question you’d like to put to Emma email me and we’ll make sure Callum gets an answer for you! Our second Saturday session is a chance to hear from a group of young filmmakers from Media Education Edinburgh about how they’ve continued Making Films During COVID and get an insight into their projects. To round the afternoon off we have a rare opportunity to see Callum’s film Convention Culture, previously screened at the Inverness Film Festival!
Saturday evening presents another watch event - this time with a showcase of young singer songwriters and performers from the Highlands and Moray! A big thanks to the young musicians from REMIX / Findhorn Bay Arts for sharing their talents!
Sunday afternoon is our one workshop experience where using an instrument, your voice or anything that makes a noise will be used to create Sample Tank, where this collection of sounds will be turned into an original piece of music.
To round things off in the evening we’re having a Quiz Night, all based on music, tv and films that we’ve been watching recently (and I think we’ve all been listening and watching to quite a lot). Create a team at home and join us to round off the weekend.
So there it is…have a look, see what’s for you and give me a shout if you have any tunes you’d like our DJ’s to play over the weekend!
