What songs, stories, dance steps and seasonal customs should every child in Scotland know? What belongs to them regardless of origin, culture or language? Presented in a simple online format incorporating text, audio, video and helpful guidelines, Gifting Every Child provides a manageable and accessible introduction to the traditional arts that can easily be put to use in the classroom, club, community hall or family sitting room.
The collection was curated with the help of acclaimed singer Christina Stewart, storyteller Bea Ferguson, and traditional dancer Mats Melin who were delighted to contribute, as Christina Stewart explains:
"One of the things that really excited me about the Gifting Every Child project is the opportunity for intergenerational interactions. In order for Scotland to have a robust living tradition, it needs to be something that our young people have that they feel is theirs, and something that they can share with adults and people of other age groups."
