Where

Online Event

Artists Cat Meighan, Sinéad Hargan & Hector MacInnes are launching Toll: a radical archive of miniature statements, stories, wishes, memories, exclamations and demands from Highlanders impacted by the coronavirus pandemic since 2020. Over the course of the spring, this archive will be drawn from contributing communities and individuals, and each short contribution will be inscribed onto a hand-bell, to be rung each time it is needed – collectively and apart, now and in the future.

The hand-bells will then travel along a route through the Highlands in early June, carried by citizens, primary school children, mountaineers, befrienders groups and many others. The procession will be filmed to create a final documentary work.

TOLL #1 – online artist discussion : hand-bells

As an opening event, Cat, Sinéad and Hector are holding an online round table discussion with makers and researchers.

In this discussion they will ask some key questions about the uses and meanings of bells in the Highlands, in Highland and Gaelic culture and in other participatory arts projects.
