Scottish Ensemble - Residencies

Glasgow-based, the Ensemble is one of Creative Scotland's foundation organisations, with well-established critical credentials and an increasingly international reputation. A core part of their work, which is highlighted in this short film made by Maker, is at grass-roots level with local communities and individuals of all ages in Scotland.

We spent four days with the Ensemble in Aberdeen, following engagements from concert halls to care homes, from schools to shopping centres, and from nightclubs to churches. Captions are integrated to underline core principles and personality, and the film has been used extensively as an active and successful demonstration of community engagement by an arts organisation.
