Elsewhere: First Images

Thank you to everyone who took some time to visit Elsewhere last weekend, it filled us with hope to see the town again from fresh perspectives and in new lights.

The first of our images from the weekend are now available, thanks to photographer Kirstin McEwan.

If you weren’t able to attend in person, much of the wonderful work we included as part of Elsewhere is available to view online, see a selection of links below.

Elsewhere was supported by Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Regional Arts Fund.

Brave New Words: What Now?

A Brave New Words update from founder and director, Martin O’Neill

This year has been quite the rollercoaster, hasn’t it?

With next year looming round the corner, we’re asking ourselves, what will it bring? Global societal change for the better? Universal basic income? A fairer and more just world? Or, judging by this year, is it all going to go a bit belly up?

Well, we hope not. But let’s ask the questions.

What Now?

Over the next couple of months we’re holding back our usual Brave New Words Friday night mash-up live-streamed extravaganzas in favour of something a little bit different. To end our year, we’re inviting creative writing submissions around the theme of ‘What Now?’ with contributions making up our first ever printed newspaper publication. We’re looking for submissions from poetry, short stories, flash fiction to text-based art from writers young and older, professional or just dabbling. Think of it like an open mic, but as a newspaper!

You can submit up to three pieces to be considered.

That said, just like our open mic, whilst every effort will be made to ensure your piece ends up in the final print we will be limited on space and can’t guarantee that everything will make it through, so do think hard on what you’re sending in.

This is a completely open submission for anyone based in Dumfries & Galloway. You don’t have to have been at a Brave New Words before, and we’re always looking for new voices to showcase.As always, we encourage you to be brave and put yourself forward.

Submission Details

If you need any more information on the publication please get in touch through our social channels or email martin@thestove.org.
Submissions should be sent to: martin@thestove.org in PDF or Word format (please don’t put your submissions in the body of the email)
Deadline: 1st December.
Get writing, & be brave.

With Love,
Brave New Words.

Elsewhere

13th and 14th November
Running from 6-9pm daily

Discover a series of light-based artworks and film installations in Dumfries town centre, created by local artists, inspired by lockdown. A short walking route starting and ending at The Stove, 100 High Street.

Audiences are invited to visit Dumfries town centre to discover a series of temporary artworks and film installations. Elsewhere is a playful investigation into our changed relationship with public space as a result of covid-19.
To begin, head to the Stove café for information about the route and the artworks. The Stove café will be open until 8pm for hot drinks and a tasty vegetable stew, so after you have explored Elsewhere, pop back and warm up. Some of the artists and organisers will be on hand to share further information.
Movement around the artworks is free and unguided, but stewards will be on hand for safety, social distancing and information about the artworks. Each work is no more than six minutes in length, so audiences are encouraged to travel between the works whilst observing social distancing guidelines. There is no sign up required, but a short wait may be required to view some works.

Elsewhere is the conclusion of a four month project, with a series of artworks and film installations in unexpected corners of the town centre over the weekend of 13th and 14th November, 6-9pm on and around Dumfries High Street.
Films will be projected onto windows and walls of spaces in the town centre. The content of the film artworks comes from the Elsewhere team of artists and have all been developed through the period of the pandemic.
Elsewhere is a creative research project led by artists exploring public space during a time when we as a community are learning to live with the effects of covid-19 on our sense of place. Elsewhere takes place between July and November 2020.
The Elsewhere team will be making artworks, in Dumfries town centre, that experiment with new forms of communal experience, gathering and exchange. We want to encourage people to pause whilst out beyond the confines of our homes, and at all times of day, inviting audiences to make tentative steps back into their town centres and high streets.
Elsewhere is a project led by The Stove Network, with support from the Midsteeple Quarter (community-led regeneration project for Dumfries High Street) and is contributing towards The Stove’s Atlas Pandemica project (10 collaborations with different communities that have responded to the pandemic.)

Elsewhere has been supported by Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Regional Arts Fund.
