A play on the traditional ‘Scratch Night’ event- 'Scratch Night' is an evening designed to give young aspiring cooks, filmmakers and musicians the opportunity to 'test' out their recipes, footage and sounds on a live audience.
We have hosted Scratch Night events in collaboration with the Scottish Refugee Festival and also working specifically with young creatives from the African continent and the African diaspora living in Glasgow for an event we hosted with Africa in Motion.
Films in this programme include:
Mark Freeman | South Africa 2018 | 27m | 15
This film is an introduction to the vibrant diversity of contemporary dance in South Africa. Rooted in both tradition and the idioms of modern movement, this documentary introduces new audiences to work ranging from site-specific solos to multimedia physical theater. The struggle for freedom is ongoing in post-apartheid South Africa. Dancemakers are discovering new opportunities and new languages to address issues of race and gender, utilising fresh approaches grounded in history, memory and personal identity.
We Journey Together
Moya Crowley and Chris McGill | Glasgow 2017 | 9m | 15
This creative short film was co-created with participants from the Govan Community Project, who wanted to dispel the misconceptions and show the reality of the obstacles faced by those who have or are currently going through the asylum process.
This event is hosted in partnership with Küche, a socially engaged organisation promoting multicultural food events, and is funded by BEMIS Scotland via the Year of Young People 2018.
