The Orkney Science Festival runs from the 6th to the 12th September, and the programmes are available NOW! I know this is so, because Mike came home with one, yesterday evening. Or, on line at www.oisf.org
The Science Fest. is participating in Scotland’s Year of Young People. To find out more about this, visit…. visitscotland.com/yoyp2018
My eyes were too tired to read the programme properly yesterday evening – today, I will peruse, and choose.
I did notice the name Hildegard of Bingen – I am a big fan of Hildegard, her music and her philosophy – I listen to my c.d’s of her music, when I need to calm my brain! So, that will probably be one event we’ll be at.
Fact is – there’s so much choice, it’s just about impossible for me to attempt to cover it all, here!
I will mention that I look forward to meeting with the Moon! An event/installation/thingy which runs from the 6th to the 16th September at Stromness Academy – have a look – skyranMOON.com
Things do link up, and this morning, I received an email from Howie ( Firth) with this link to a performance of music by a singer/composer from Ireland who is coming to the Festival this year with his quartet of musicians. www.youtube.com/watch?v=iX_puZyGw94. Another tempting event. There are so many, this is just a ‘taster’ – have a look at the programme – peruse, and choose for yourself.
What a place to live!
