Head for thought

ayr 268

Head for thought encourages young people from across Ayrshire to engage with their local culture and heritage and also to look at Burns’ poems, relating them to life in Scotland today.

Embracing the spirit of rebellion and independence so typical of Burns they are producing contemporary creative responses to what they have found inspiring at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum. Each group will produce an online counter-culture magazine working with Scots poet Rab Wilson and illustrator John Fardell.
