In response to Visit Scotland’s Year of Stories, the RGI are happy to announce an Open Call for artworks related to stories, fairy tales and the art of storytelling. The exhibition will be held at the RGI Kelly Gallery in June 2022. We welcome all practices and mediums, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, performance and video. Visit Scotland Information The love of stories is hardwired into us all; it is one of the strongest ways we connect with one another and share our experiences. Great stories, well told, can evoke indelible images in our minds and bring contemporary and traditional cultures to life. Every culture has its stories to tell, and Scotland has a particularly rich heritage of stories and storytelling to spotlight and celebrate. These include our local tales, oral traditions, great stories told in books or on screen – all inspired by our country, our culture and reflected by many diverse voices and across the widest range of forms. Stories are vital to every part of Scotland. Every community has its own tales to tell, places to highlight as inspiration for well-known books and films, visitor attractions that showcase our literary and storytelling heritage and all kinds of places and spaces where stories, old and new, can be enjoyed.
