A night to celebrate Scotland’s diverse communities, hosted and styled in the fashion of a Traveller ceilidh, a traditional ‘gathering’. The evening will invite & support Travellers and non-Travellers to contribute and celebrate music, traditional food and spoken word. This Ceilidh will be both a Celebration of North East Traveller culture and its links to North East heritage; whilst also being a safe-space where dialogue and positive community cohesion can be furthered.
The night will consist of performances inspired by Traveller culture in the North East, both from Traveller contributors and non-Traveller contributors. This will include a performances from key local & National Traveller/Roma performers to draw communities. Furthermore, it will help to break stereotypes surrounding Gypsy/Travellers which are propagated through negative media; whilst being an event for the wider empowerment of individuals from marginalised minority and ethnic groups.
