Hanna Tuulikki, Alberta Whittle and Katie Paterson are among our favourite cultural contributors this year

It’s safe to say that 2019 has been a mammoth year for creativity and innovation in Scotland. From award-winning albums to groundbreaking theatrical works, we cover it all in our annual countdown of the figures who we feel have made the greatest impact on arts and culture in the country throughout the year. But The List’s Hot 100 has a twist this time: we’ve got a Top 19 for 2019, though beyond that we’re celebrating everyone equally because as we head towards 2020 and reflect back on the past decade, we feel that the Scottish cultural landscape is as healthy, bold and exciting as it’s ever been.

Edinburgh-based radical arts organisation present five days of performances, discussions, screenings and more

Somewhere in the virtual realm, a Google Drive exists where artists, activists and philosophers can brainstorm and geek out. It’s a study group called The Institute of Physical Sociality, created by Edinburgh-based radical community arts organisation, Arika.

‘The group have been wondering if they can provide generative analogies for reading the complex desires and struggles of social life,’ writes Barry Esson from Arika. ‘Or if the disturbing findings might be poetic indicators of the impossibility of continuing with dominant ways of understanding existence.’

Following on from 2017’s weekend festival Other Worlds Already Exist (themed around science fiction) is Episode 10: A Means Without End, using quantum theory, maths and physics alongside music, film and dance to untangle some knotty modern issues. Poets, academics and sound artists will gather for five days to find imaginative routes out of oppression, be it patriarchal, heteronormative, ableist or racist. Jazz theorist and black studies scholar Fred Moten is returning to Glasgow, alongside performance artist boychild, documentary maker Wu Tsang and tarot reader / philosopher Denise Ferreira da Silva. Jackie Wang is a punk zine creator, performing a piece for harp inspired by Alice Coltrane, and Nathaniel Mackey, the black radical poet, will read his work and take part in discussion groups.

With huge amounts of talent across Scotland in every genre, it’s inevitable that there are omissions across the Hot 100 every year. We give a shout out to some folks whose work is very much on our radar for next year

We’re big fans of Savage Mansion, aka Glasgow-based singer and guitarist Craig Angus and friends, whose brilliant debut album Revision Ballads was released earlier this year on Lost Map Records. Another Lost Map hero, Romeo Taylor (alter ego of former Savage Mansion drummer Taylor Stewart) has charmed audiences with his bizarre yet wonderful live presence and anthem-in-the-making ‘The Kingdom of Scotland’. We’re also looking forward to seeing what Glasgow ‘sophisti-pop’ duo The Lawnmower have in the works for 2020. Still in Glasgow, Cloth have already impressed the likes of Vic Galloway, Huw Stephens and Tom Robinson, and with their debut album due in mid-November, the plaudits are certainly likely to continue for the trio.

German-Scottish duo LUNIR recently returned with their infectious new single ‘Cubs’, and we’re also excited to hear more of pop performer Scarlett Randle, singer-songwriter Zoe Graham (whose new single is out in November), electronic pop artist and producer Wuh Oh, and The Honey Farm rapper Bee Asha Singh following her appearance in powerful documentary Spit it Out. Glasgow producer North Sea Dialect released his lush and ambient debut album Local Guide late last year on Numbers, and Edinburgh’s Paradise Palms Records have also had some excellent releases this year, including those by Maranta and Kiwi.

The individuals and institutions that will forever be our number ones

Here at List HQ, we take our Hot 100 duties very seriously. Every entry and position is carefully considered to decipher who has made a significant impact on Scotland’s art and culture scene. With this in mind, we think it would be a disservice to our talented past winners not to give them the shout-out they deserve and recognise the qualities that won them that top position. So, here’s a Hot 100 hall of fame, to make it clear that these individuals and institutions will always be number one in our eyes.

Glasgow Women’s Library (2018)

The Glasgow Women’s Library had ‘quietly been going about their business for nearly 30 years’, when last year a deserved spotlight was shone on their work with an Art Fund Museum of the Year Award nomination. As the only accredited museum dedicated to women’s history in the UK, the library is not just for women, but for anyone interested in heritage, culture and the spirit of inclusion. It holds a healthy archive of 20,000 books, 3000 artefacts and 400,000 donated items, while also running a diverse programme of events all year round. Sue John, GWL’s enterprise developmen现金棋牌捕鱼游戏大厅下载t manager, summed their work up as, ‘trying to be part of solutions, and not part of problems’.

We give a shout out to some of our favourite unique venues across the country

Formerly the veterinary school of the University of Edinburgh, Summerhall is a network of halls, galleries and lecture theatres that form a warren of fascinating spaces. As well as a year-round centre for the arts, it has firmly established itself as one of the Fringe’s most significant venues. For more than two decades, The Stand has been hosting daily comedy nights from its cosy wee basement off Edinburgh’s Queen Street, its famously tiny stage hosting some of the biggest names in stand-up. A relative newcomer to the capital’s comedy scene, Monkey Barrel has quickly established itself as a serious contender for week-round hilarity in a characterful Old Town setting.

Stills has been a vital champion of photographic art since 1977 but its position in the Old Town is under threat after the council elected to hike its rent over the next five years. As the number of live music venues in Edinburgh further dwindles, Leith Depot’s position on the scene is 下载送现金的捕鱼游戏下载vital. A recent second stay of execution has secured short-term survival, although its landlord developer is determined to demolish the block on which it stands.

With so much to see and do across the country on 30 November, we round up a few of the events and charitable causes we’re most excited about this year

As the rest of the world gears up for the consumerist feeding frenzy that is Black Friday, there is a different song to be sung here in Scotland, as community groups and creative minds throughout the nation prepare for St Andrew’s Fair Saturday.

Taking place on the last Saturday of November each year, Fair Saturday originated in the Spanish city of Bilbao as a multi-arts movement that aims to promote empathy and togetherness in the face of growing isolation and xenophobia. Since its first edition in 2015, the movement has quickly spread across the world, and Scotland became the first to parti注册游戏送现金捕鱼cipate as a nation in 2018, tying it with the annual celebration of Scotland’s patron saint.

In cities and towns across the world, artists and cultural bodies will host concerts, events and workshops in support of a social cause close to their heart, whether it be a refugee charity or a local hospice. Last year, over a million euros were raised by over 10,000 organisers in 180 cities.

As St Andrew’s Fair Saturday is (unfortunately) only one day a year, and with such a diverse, exciting programme ahead, some difficult choices will need to be made. To help you in the decision-making process, we’re here to shout about a few of the events that we’re most keen to check out this year.

With Scotland’s festival landscape having changed beyond recognition in the last half-decade, we take a look at some must-attend music and multi-arts gatherings from 2019

Located midway between Stirling and Loch Lomond, Doune the Rabbit Hole bore an outstanding and varied line-up this year, courtesy of Glasgow promoters 432 Presents, while Kelburn Garden Party continues to offer a bohemian party in a great location amid a forested hillside valley filled with art. With an extra night to accommodate a guest appearance by The Waterboys, Portree’s Skye Live also provided an unlikely but workable blend of club beats and contemporary folk in a location which has to be visited.

The urban club festival has now become the destination of choice for large numbers of young festivalgoers, with Glasgow’s Riverside Festival having expanded this year to offer a line-up on the banks of the Clyde that’s worthy of the Slam Tent (RIP). Yet for all that Glasgow’s club scene is thriving, Edinburgh leads the way with such shows. FLY Open Air’s spring event at Hopetoun House and autumn party in Princes Street Gardens are big draws, as is the ever-expanding Terminal V a下载捕鱼送 12元现金t Ingliston.

Nationwide programme of book events features Doug Johnstone, Helen Fitzgerald, Ian Rankin, Jack Monroe and more

Scotland’s annual celebration of everything book, writing and reading-related is back, with a fabulous selection of events in November. Taking place over seven jam-packed days, Book Week Scotland 2019 brings authors and entertainers to venues all over the country in a book-filled extravaganza.

The theme this year is ‘Conversation’, so there will be plenty of chances to chat, ask questions and share points of view at intriguing-sounding events such as Souper Stories; Murder Mystery; Books, Beer & Banter and The Blether Bus. There will also be big names from all walks of bookish life, including Doug Johnstone, Helen Fitzgerald, Sara Sheridan and many more. In a special event hosted by Stuart MacBride, bestselling author Ian Rankin will chat about the launch of his ‘lost’ novel, Westwind.

Discover real-life stories from Scotland with 100,000 free copies of the Blether book available from libraries and other community venues throughout the week. Alternatively, read them online and be sure to dip into the free BWS Digital Festival for podcasts curated by poet Tom Pow, exclusive illustrations from artist Alex T Smith and much more.

There’s also the chance to see unique events from food writer and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe, critically acclaimed comic artist Frank Quitely, award-winning romance author Jenny Colgan and poet and author Dean Atta, all as part of BWS’s Pitch It strand. This innovative slant on book event programming asks libraries and community groups to submit ideas for an event with the authors, who then take part in the winning pitches.

Scottish Book Trust will also be asking the nation to help them find the most iconic Scots word. Will your favourite be on the list? Head online to vote before checking out the full programme, picking a few events for your diary and getting ready to blether about some terrific stories this autumn.

Ahead of her upcoming UK dates, Natasha Khan talks to us about new album Lost Girls and feeling inspired by west coast Steven Spielberg-style films

In the two-and-a-half years that she has been living in Los Angeles, Natasha Khan, aka the imaginative, inventive musical auteur Bat for Lashes, has taught meditation to pre-release prisoners, worked with teenagers at a continuation school to help them towards graduation, enrolled in a screenwriting course at UCLA and driven a heck of a lot – west to the coast for walks, nature trails and camping expeditions, and around the Mexican neighbourhoods where she lives in east LA.

‘If you try to take on too much LA, it’s sprawling and overwhelming,’ says Khan, as she takes her rescue dog on a morning walk through the grounds of Obama’s alma mater, Occidental College. ‘I’ve been immersing myself in the parts of LA that are suffering from the whole political system but also seem to be the strongest to me in terms of culture and richness.

‘It’s been really nice in my late 30s to have such a huge lifestyle change that shakes things up. People are so up for things. There are actors and dancers and performers everywhere that you can collaborate with and they’re really open to experimentation. It’s been really inspiring creatively.’

Veteran actor discusses celebrating his 80th year and his latest role in Bill Condon’s mystery thriller, The Good Liar

Sir Ian McKellen is a larger than life presence. Sitting across from him at a large round table in a hotel suite room, it occasionally feels like we’re having a relaxed chinwag at Bilbo Baggins shire cottage. He sets a genial atmosphere, booming with laughter and radiating wisdom. For his latest film he’s teamed up once again with director Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Mr Holmes) who has adapted Nicholas Searle’s novel The Good Liar. It is, however, the first time he has worked on a film with Dame Helen Mirren who plays a wealthy widow. McKellen’s conman meets her online and sets up a scheme to steal her money. ‘Have you seen the film?’, he enquires when asked to comment on his scenes with Mirren. ‘That’s more than I have!’ he laughs.

On working with Mirren on a film, McKellen says, ‘It was like I thought it would be. It was jolly good fun!’ And on the reasons he continues to work with Condon he chirpily explains, ‘Bill always treads a wonderful atmosphere, whether it’s a big film or a small film. He’s always in charge, but always excited to be there as if he’s at someone else’s party, rather than the one he’s organised. When i捕鱼赢现金最靠谱t comes to Bill I have total confidence. You know it’s going to be brilliantly lit and photographed, you know the costumes are going to be fantastic. You know the whole production around him will be great, you know it will be very well cast. What’s to complain about?’
