Nithraid

2016

Commission: Outdoor Performance

The Stove Network

Nithraid is a community-led River Festival. It is a fun, family event that takes place on and around Dumfries’ River Nith.

As part of this event, there is a “Salty Coo” procession to celebrate the relationship between the town and the river. In 2016, myself and artist Dillon Colthart were commissioned to design and create this parade. We had a great time generating an other-worldly and extremely colourful performance around the theme of acceptance. A large crowd of people joined in on the procession which travelled from Dumfries town centre right down to the river.

This year’s Nithraid will take place on Saturday, 11th August 2018.
