RS has been invited to participate in The Nusqool Kindepay Artists Residency - a virtual (for now) interdisciplinary collective of artists, thinkers and practitioners exploring creative ways to make kindness visible for times of deep ecological, economic and social change. Nusqool is a centre for creative expression and healing based in a converted school house in rural Ontario. Kindepay is a tool and a movement, presenting acts of kindness as currency (RS is a Kindepay merchant). The fruits of the residency will become visible in 2022, and beyond...
RS has been engaged to design and deliver some new funded programmes of writing workshops, working with The Byre Writers group in St Andrews; and with Historic Environment Scotland; sessions running early in 2022.
Read RS's interview with Imre Szeman and Caleb Wellum for the Energy Humanities' series Helios (#3), discussing all things Rough Currency.
NOTES FOR A TRAVELLER
Commissioned for the group exhibition KIOSK at An Lanntair (Stornoway) in Summer 2021, RS's work Notes for a Traveller is a collection of visual poems; a place-aware oracle deck exploring time, environment and memory. Final few limited edition copies are available here.
Enjoy this short reading with imagery, of RS's prose poem The Residents of Airth, from Rough Currency.
Rough Currency, RS's new poetry pamphlet collection with Tapsalteerie is available now. "...an achingly beautiful, far-sighted sequence... Visionary. Oracular. Fearless. Compelling."- John Glenday
