Letters to Jackie
Right To Be Human
(Sun 15 Oct: 8pm)
Sixty years ago in Dundee, DC Thomson’s Jackie magazine was a bestseller for the teenage market and young readers flocked to Jackie’s ‘agony aunts’ Cathy and Clare with their problems. But where can we seek answers to our present-day dilemmas and challenges?
Sgàthach Storytellers Bea Ferguson, Heather Yule and Maria Whatton bring the power of the old tales to answer the problems of today. Come and join them as agony aunts in an interactive session of story and music!
On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, creatives within and beyond the storytelling community celebrate and explore aspects of our common humanity. The Right To Be Human series includes new shows specially commissioned for this year’s Festival.
Join us as we explore, question and celebrate the Right To Be Human. This year, on the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we consider the many challenges we face, from human health and wellbeing to the health and future of our planet. However, there is also a worldwide movement to meet these challenges, and to exist imaginatively, fairly and in community with the whole diversity of life. Storytelling has embraced these values from the dawn of culture and stories today can help us be more connected to the world around us, as well as our rights, showing us how to be more alive and creative as humans.
