Is political community and shared feelings good for change or does it leave us in a bubble talking among ourselves?
Butterfly Rammy is a series of events held by Common Weal for this year's Edinburgh Fringe, looking at the political and cultural legacy of last year's Referendum debate, and how we can move forward. In the spirit of the theme of Coorie, this show is a special takeover. The cultural platform Kiltr will be curating all the guests and performers as well as addressing the issue of whether our new political communities can effect change. Many different artists, musicians, activists and organisations have been invited to take part, including KILTR. Our KILTR takeover will be on Friday 21st August at 12.20, and we'll be live-streaming our panel from here so you can enjoy the proceedings from wherever you might happen to be. We'll be discussing issues around the Referendum and how New Media in Scotland came to the fore in what was a political awakening for all in Scotland and joining us will be KILTR CEO Brian Hughes, political performance artist Chunky Mark the Artist Taxi Driver, Scottish rapper and blogger Darren McGarvey (aka Loki), and Victoria Heaney from the Radical Independence Campaign. There will also be a surprise musical guest.
