Roller Derby

Hell hath no fury like an audacious woman on roller skates. It may come as a surprise to some people that learn that Scotland has a vibrant female roller derby scene,  from the Auld Reekie Roller Girls in Edinburgh, to Glasgow Roller Derby, to the Dundee Roller Girls.

DOK artist space

Audacity comes in handy when you're making art - or setting up an artist space. Karen Fleming and Olivia Turner founded the DOK Artist Space with fellow ECA graduate Daryl Mckee, which houses exhibitions and offers studio space to up to nine artists at a time in Ocean Terminal.

Women and whisky

Did you catch us in the paper this weekend? The wonderful Justine Hazelhurst - the woman behind Kask Whisky - was interviewed by the Sunday Herald for a Burns Night feature on her upcoming 'Women & Whisky' tasting at the Audacious Women Festival.

"With its collaborative and encouraging vibe, celebrating personal victories alongside historical groundbreakers, the Audacious Women Fest makes it easy to try something new."

We were delighted to see the Audacious Women Festival featured in The List this week.

How do you like your freedom? Swallowed neat?
Distillations of history, language, weather
In an usqueba o barley, burn water, peat."
