Aye Inspired

Aye Inspired | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it

Hi, My name's Gillian. Also known as Misssy M. I'm a creative type, I'm also a yes voter. I'm a member of National Collective, which is a huge group of creative folks who want Scottish independence and I want to get out there and start talking to people about independence. I'm not a politician, I don't belong to any party and I don't have a mainstream media outlet to talk to people. I just make things and want my country to run its own affairs. 

This summer Scotland is going to be thrumming with people like me doing creative things for independence. And I'd like to tell you what we've got planned. Myself and some artist pals are working on pieces of art that have been inspired by the debate around independence. There's about ten of us at the moment, but we want you to join in. Our plan is to take our art exhibition, Aye Inspired anywhere that will have us in the North East of Scotland. And even further afield if we can get the means to do it.


I need two things- art and sympathetic venues.
