The Scottish Borders
Working with communities across The Scottish Borders, we've co-created a proposal to commemorate their many and varied experiences over recent years, discovering ways for the impacts of covid to be remembered which are resonant for this area.
If you live in the Scottish Borders, tell us about the colours you want to see in the tartan here.
Two Destination Language is led by Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie. We make bold award-winning performance work which explores ideas of identity, belonging and boundaries. Our work tours in the UK and internationally. It can be seen on theatre stages, in village halls, in libraries, in galleries, in parks, along roads, in abandoned shops. We also create exhibitions, installations and print publications.
We work with other brilliant and often award winning creatives and artists to create experiences which are touching, thought provoking, intellectually stimulating and very visually arresting.
Our projects working with non-professional members of the community have been transformative for those involved and for the places they live, shared with public audiences like any of our other work.
Our curatorial projects take shape in festivals we produce and conversations we undertake. Listening is a key method in our process and inclusion underpins everything we do!
Two Destination Language is a registered charity committed to promoting the arts as a vital part of societal wellbeing, challenging populist ideas, reaching audience members from under-represented groups and supporting artists in every way we can.
Two Destination Language makes bold, ambitious, award-winning work about identity and community. We employ innovative artistic forms to cross cultural, social, economic and geographic barriers, celebrating difference and placing the lives of those we work with at the heart of everything we do. Rooted in dialogue and collaboration, we believe in the transformative power of art to change how we see ourselves and the society we share. Our work brings people together in new, unexpected ways, creating shared spaces for reflection and mutual understanding.
