Celtic Connections in the Community

We are delighted to bring the inaugural Celtic Connections in the Community to the festival in 2020 in collaboration with our long-time partners BEMIS.

Five events will make up Celtic Connections in the Community, including a workshop opportunity with festival artists who will then perform with workshop participants at the ‘BEMIS presents Les Amazonas D’Afrique & special guests’ show on Saturday the 25th of January.

Our Celtic Connections in the Community events will enable local and diverse Glasgow communities to showcase the best of Scotland’s contemporary cultural traditions and work with professional artists to bring a special collaborative performance to Glasgow’s world-renowned music festival.

Keep an eye out here, and on the BEMIS website and social media for announcements of groups who have been successfully funded to lead these local events.

Applications closed Friday 25th October 2019, and the successful groups will be announced at the end of November.

The Celtic Connections in the Community events and finale showcase with Les Amazonas D’Afrique is a partnership between BEMIS and Celtic Connections with kind support from the Scottish Government and Unison.
