The Droving talks, featuring Scottish and international speakers, will take place on 3 October at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries.
The Droving Project exhibition is showing from 29 August to 24 October 2015 as part of a major new exhibition exploring farming, land and agricultural heritage.
We walked across an old drovers route from Galloway to town in Ayrshire, in the uplands of South West Scotland. We took three cows, an award winning photographer Alice Myers, a film maker Stevie Whiteford, a musician Nick Jenkins, a sound artist Pete Smith and a writer Catrina Davies with us.
The exhibition previously showed at the Doon Valley Museum in Dalmellington, East Ayrshire. A series of community activities and events took place around it.
Supported by Creative Scotland, WH Mcwilliam Cattle Haulage, Knockengorroch CIC, Foundation Scotland, Cumnock and Doon Valley Minerals Trust, East Ayrshire Council and Ayrshire Spinners.
