(Many more details to be announced – but we thought we should give you the basic dates asap)
|Last year's Nithraid poster|
Nithraid 2015 will take place on Saturday 13th September on and around the River Nith in Dumfries
Following on from last years triumphant inaugural Nithraid – it is back for 2015….more boats in the race…an arty market by the Nith…musical procession…and artworks of every stripe.
Nithraid will be one of our biggest events this year – there are lots of ways that you can get involved:
- Help sewing flags and pennants for the event
- Join the Nithraid Street Band (led by musicians Ruth Morris and Gavin Marwick)
- Run a stall at the Nithraid Street Market
- Take part in the Sailing Race itself
Trading Journeys will take place on Saturday 27th October at multiple locations in Wigtown – culminating outside the County Buildings from 4pm
The Stove Network has been commissioned to create a live artwork for the Wigtown Book Festival. Trading Journeys is an ambitious event with ways for festival-goers to get hands-on. The project is based around Wigtown’s role as a market town and the different routes that people and goods took to get there. Trading Journeys will involve crossings of the Cree Estuary, horse drawn transport and a procession with everything coming together around a portable foundry making spoons (sounds fairly Stoveish – right)
Parking Space will take place on 17th and 18th October
A two-day event that creatively inhabits unexpected urban spaces. Parking Space will ask searching questions about the urban environment in Dumfries …and be a lot of fun. One of the elements of Parking Space will be The Stove Network AGM…unlike any boring old meeting you have ever experienced our AGM will be an artwork in itself and chance for the everyone to get together.
