The Wireless Set – Film Screening and Discussion

Date & Time
23 April 2024, 18:00 – 19:30

We are looking forward to hosting The Wireless Set by Esme Andrews, a film screening followed by a discussion on April 23rd 6 – 7.30 PM

Welcome to a screening of The Wireless Set – an ethnographic and film project about islands, care, globalisation, and peripheral voices. This Orkney based project by Esme Andrews began as part of a Masters degree in Visual Anthropology. A year on, it’s still developing and finding its impact in the wellbeing of Scotland’s rural and island communities. The project was Esme’s response to ongoing complaints in the archipelago about healthcare provision for our non-linked isles, a situation which reminded her of a story by George Mackay Brown. The film part of the project is therefore an effort to tune into the island voice and suggest a remedy to this pattern we see in rural and island care under a centralised system. It’s about spending time paying attention to those who feel the impacts acutely and paying attention to how they struggle to navigate this space.

Come along to enjoy the film and perhaps exchange thoughts on how the ideas of this project might benefit rural health moving forward!
