Tackling Sectarianism - Showcase Event

A showcase event presenting the outcomes of just Festival and Black Dingo Productions project, supported by the Scottish Government. Join us for the event and see three specially commissioned productions aimed at tackling sectarianism and raising awareness of this complex issue. 

Thanks to the Scottish Government, as part of their nationwide campaign to tackle sectarianism, we showcased six plays exploring and challenging the narratives, causes and understanding of intra-Christian sectarianism in Scotland. In partnership with Black Dingo Productions, these plays challenged local writers, directors, actors and audiences to examine the complex sectarianism in Scotland from the time of Martin Luther to present day.
