Manns Green Footsteps - call for music

Wed, 08 Jan 2020

Culture Vannin’s latest initiative, Mann’s Green Footsteps is calling on all musicians with an interest in the environment, climate change, biodiversity, and of course, the Isle of Man. Organised by Culture Vannin’s intern, Sarah Mercer, Mann’s Green Footsteps is a crowd-sourced short film following the journey of how climate change is influencing Manx culture. It will use clips submitted from people around the Island, and Sarah would also like to use Manx made music as the soundtrack. If you already have a piece centred around the themes of climate change, community and biodiversity, or would like to create a new one, then please send them to sarah@culturevannin.im, who will try and include as many as possible in the final production. Everyone who submits a piece will be invited to a (free!) festival in August, where the film will be premiered, there will be the opportunity to share local food, listen to speakers and participate in workshops on all kinds of topics relating to climate and our beautiful Island. Sarah is also interested in pieces that are instrumental only, particularly Viking and Celtic inspired.
