The Mythology Sessions


Which mythological sources inform our sense of Scotland’s land and people?

What do these myths mean for us in the present and future?

Explore some of the big defining tales, and their influence on poetry, song, and story, in a time when Scotland is re-connecting in many cultural ways with its landscape and imaginative formation.

This workshop series provides a creative journey into Scotland’s underlying sources and traditions of myth. Often misunderstood, Scotland draws on Celtic and Norse mythologies, while also tapping into some much older layers. Each session will provide a short background, focusing on one tradition, followed by one big representative story to explore how such a tale can be told and expressed.

This is a unique opportunity for artists, storytellers and educators.

The series is led by Svend-Erik Engh and Donald Smith with additional guest storytellers.
