A Moment’s Peace News

common ground

Created by JC Marshall and Scott Twynholm, the common ground podcast is a mini series of 8 episodes. Each episode has been made in conjunction with different rural and urban communities – hailing from Ulva Ferry to Barmulloch to Dundee to others in between – and tells the stories of meaningful transformations to their local landscape.

Unearthing stories about how we live now, and how we might live in the future

This month, we have the culmination of our common ground project with live events across the country.

These events – a combination of installation, discussion and performance – see the work we have created with participants over the last several months travel around the country to open up a dialogue about land and housing in Scotland. The work has been created with a real diversity of participants in close collaboration with the artistic team, resulting in a beautiful blend of photographs, creative writing, sculptures and sound pieces as a result of our common ground podcast.

From working with primary school children in Mull to older adults who have experienced homelessness in Aberdeen, to young adults with learning disabilities in Dundee to asylum seekers in Glasgow, and many more across the 4 regions, common ground has sought out diverse and marginalised voices and folded them into the ongoing nationwide conversation on housing and land use. The common ground events not only showcase their creative work but are a representation of their ideas and experiences.

common ground will be presented at

Ancient Form of Dance

Bellydancing is an ancient form of dance, which is believed to have originated in Egypt. Nowadays there are a range of styles including traditional Egyptian, modern Tribal styles and a variety of fusions which show the enormous creativity and versatility within the dance and the dancers.

There are no barriers in age, size or shape to Bellydancing and body positivity and confidence is a very important part of Bellydance, encouraging dancers to value and respect their bodies exactly as they are, and express themselves creatively through dance. You do not need to have any previous dance experience to take part in this dance form, and dancers will tell you how much it can improve  their sense of well-being.
I perform regularly around Scotland and have recently started making costume accessories such as headdresses.

If you are interested in giving Bellydance a try, please contact admin@tayberryenterprise.org for more information
