Exhibition: History and Heritage of Religions in Scotland

The exhibition will be on display in the Scottish Storytelling Centre from Mon 14 June - Sun 18 July. Networking Key Services (NKS), a community organisation, presents a short film and exhibition to the people of Edinburgh and beyond. Come to the Scottish Storytelling Centre's court and cafe space to enjoy and explore the work and see how religions have emerged and evolved over the years following migration. As history of religions is important to the local communities, heritage is all the more important to the South Asian communities who have been learning about the history of all religions in Scotland. This experience has given the NKS network a better picture of the place they now call home, with a great sense of belonging. Please be advised the exhibition space is being used by the Scottish Storytelling Cafe - Please wear face coverings and maintain social distancing.

Harry Baker: I am 10,000

This is a rescheduled event. Tickets currently not on sale. Previous ticket holders will be contacted first. Mathematician-turned-World-Slam-Champion Harry Baker turns 10,000 days old, celebrating numbers, words and life itself. From winning his school's Battle of the Bands competition with a Jay-Z maths homage, to his prime number poetry TED talk being watched by millions online, Harry's love of language and logic has got him through literal marathons, seen him rap battle in front of Ice Cube, and now has him analysing the technical accuracy of So Solid Crew's 21 seconds. He's got 99 problems but maths ain't one. 'The greatest performer on earth' ***** (BBC Radio 1) ‘his poetry is a masterpiece, both in rhythm and content. The wordplay is so clever it takes the audience a couple of lines to notice, but when we do, we’re gasping with both disbelief and laughter’ ***** (Wee Review) 'Ferociously intelligent' **** (Scotsman) ‘The show does exactly what it says on the label, and it does it better than you can possibly envision: this man is not a world champion for nothing.’ **** (Broadway Baby)
