Hillfoots Tales is here to collect and share local myths, tales and legends, to help preserve our heritage. We aim to promote the oral storytelling tradition, the arts and our beautiful Clackmannanshire landscape.
Founded in December 2017, in partnership with the Scottish Storytelling Centre, we now organise workshops, storytelling evenings, story walks and take part in the Scottish International Storytelling Festival (SISF). We deliver workshops to all ages; outdoors on location, in schools, theatres, art studios, sheltered housing and in local halls.
As well as working with adults and school children, Cubs, Scouts and Brownies, our Wild Hillfoots Storytelling Project is a series of tailored workshops for women which uses storytelling to promote well-being and build confidence.
Our events are free or low-cost, to try and ensure our programmes are as inclusive as possible. So far feedback has been very positive (see our testimonials) and we have featured in the local press and radio. If you are interested in working together then please get in touch.
Hillfoots Tales is funded through the Creative Communities Programme.
