Some months back we invited Bill Mills to speak to us about Reframing at the Glasgow P4Indy group. He gave us a good overview of what is involved in Reframing and you can find some of that here. The month after that we tried our own hand at reframing in a couple of short workshops. You can see what we came up with here.…. and one thing we found out is that reframing is quite hard to do!
Since it is hard to do – for us beginners, anyway – I was very pleased to hear from June Maxweel the other day that she has a set of short podcasts called Subtle Signposts which back up what we learnt from Bill, expand on some of his topics, and develop others. I heard June speak at the National Yes Registry Day in Stirling last autumn and liked her approach. In these podcasts she focuses on one aspect of Reframing at a time. I’m currently half way through them and think they will be very useful.
The 16 March was that Saturday when Scotland was caught in a jetstream-powered downpour of rain, sleet and snow but 70 of us still made our way to our AGM in Edinburgh. We were very fortunate to have three speakers joining us: Edinburgh City Councillor Ashley Graczyk, Joanna Cherry QC MP, and Paul Kavanagh-Mosson with the Wee Ginger Dug.
Lesley Riddoch is a well kent face in media Scottish, and in the Indy Movement. for a number of years she has championed aligning Scotland with our Nordic neighbours. She’s frequently to be found at Yes Group meetings around Scotland. This is her at Clydebank Town Hall before Christmas.
One of the results of her focus on our Nordic neighbours is a series of short films looking at the similarities and differences between us and the three nations of Faros, Iceland and Norway. Here are the three films.
