Cait McCullagh

Based on an extended creative ethnology practice, this seminar uses co-produced film excerpts to explore how participants from across Orkney and Shetland collaborated to co-curate aspects of their maritime pasts and present towards assembling futures, including mobilising the ill-fit of systemic norms to stimulate innovative 'change intelligence' in their 'edgy centres'.  Adopting a bricolage approach to examining the interplay of heritage processes and learning for sustainable development, at scale, enabled an iterative praxis for supporting the participants to ‘dwell’ in consciously deliberating, performing and renovating their heritage processes, beyond instrumental uses, developing their possibility as ‘reflexive traditions’ for sustaining people and places.
