TWOFOLD: The Milestone Circle by Maya Rose Edwards

Join us for the opening ceremony at Moss Wood Bute Community Forest!

On 28th January 2023 Maya Rose Edwards will complete their Emerging Artist Residency with the installation of The Milestone Circle in the Bute Community Forest.

Throughout November last year Maya met with local residents from the LGBTQ+ communities to explore their relationship to the island. Their stories, words and memories fed directly into the resulting artwork which celebrates literal and metaphoric milestones in the lives of local LGBTQ+ people.

For the installation of the sculpture there will be a newly written song by islander Kenzie Mack and a short talk by John Wilkes of the Scottish Equality & Human Rights Commission. Light refreshments will be provided by food artist Mathilde N’Doye.

This event will be outdoors, please dress accordingly. Some paths may be muddy.

All welcome!
