Delve 2024 Panel: Still Making Despite It All

What does it mean to make art at the end of the world? With the news and media showing us the planet is getting hotter, politics shifting to even higher extremes, and people becoming more and more divided and we ask; What is the role of the artist? How does our work impact the world? How do we continue forward making art, despite it all?



  • Novelist: Rachelle Atalla
  • Theatre maker: Katy Dye
  • Poet: Molly McLachlan
  • Musician: Emme Woods (The Joy Hotel)

Hosted by Ben Torrie, Director of Programming and Creative Projects at Aberdeen Performing Arts.
