A’ Chailleach – The Cailleach

A’ Chailleach – The Cailleach

Visual-artist Judith Parrott and singer-songwriter Gillebride MacMillan collaborate to present a creative response to A’ ChailleachThe Cailleach – goddess of the weather, creator of Scotland and maker of mountains. Specifically, the project explores the role of The Cailleach as weather Goddess with reference to the climate crisis and COP26.

Dear Green Bothy’s A’ Chailleach will question how respect for traditional knowledge and engagement with wilderness, can inform action to the climate crisis being addressed by COP26.

Dr Alasdair Whyte will also present a lecture on The Cailleach in place names and lore in Gaelic Scotland.

Presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy, a collaborative cultural programme from the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts showcasing creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
