A trailer for Group Hug at Edinburgh International Children's Festival at the National Museum of Scotland on Sunday 27 May 2018.
Group Hug was originally conceived by Hannah Venet as part of the PUSH (over)protection Lab in Hasselt, Belgium in September 2017 which was funded by Creative Europe. She created this development with Caitlin Mulgrew as sound designer with additional funds from the City of Edinburgh Council, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Imaginate.
Group Hug is performed here by a choir of Primary 5s from Taobh na Pàirce (Edinburgh Gaelic School), members of Lyra Young Company, members of PRIME (age 60+ dance ensemble at Dance Base), Lou Brodie, Misa Brzezicki, Claricia Kruithof and Mark Bleakley.
