Season Butler

Stet

Wed 17 – Sat 20 August, all day

*Stet |stɛt| [imperative verb]: let it stand; an instruction on a printed proof to indicate that a marked alteration should be ignored; a performative writing retreat on commemoration and constructive forgetting.

Over four days, seven artists will tap our global, national and collective histories as a vehicle to explore the politics and practice of performative writing. We’ll look at history as an act of agency; (un)making the past, we’ll overwrite, redact, erase, edit, highlight, conserve.

On 17 August we’ll emerge with outcomes, artifacts, residues and offcuts in cutting room at Forest Fringe’s home at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall.

    Over the course of 2021 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
