The first Doric visual storytelling event of its kind will take place next week as part of an Aberdeenshire festival.

Aa Yap: Pecha Kucha – a fast-moving, visual storytelling session – will be held at the Across the Grain Festival on October 9.

Pecha Kucha is Japanese for “chit chat” and during the session, presenters will show 20 slides for 20 seconds of commentary.

Speakers on the evening will include well known local poets, artists, writers and thinkers. It will be held at the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses in Fraserburgh from 6.30pm-9.30pm. Booking is essential, visit http://bit.ly/BrochPK 

Meanwhile, a Doric celebration will be held in Braemar this weekend as part of the festival.

The annual event has been inspired by the region’s Doric history and showcases how heritage, music and stories still contribute to the region’s shared cultural experience.

Delivered by a partnership involving St Margaret’s, The Elphinstone Institute, Braemar Castle and Across the Grain, the weekend will feature two evening concerts, an exhibition including a short film, a drop-in discussion session and a ballad workshop.

St Margaret’s will host both the evening concerts, on Friday the historic church will welcome traditional fiddle player Paul Anderson who will play with Peter Hedlund.

People are also being invited to join poet Jo Gilbert for linguistic fun and exploration during two drop-in discussion opportunities between noon-2pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
