To Absent Friends 2020

To Absent Friends festival is taking place across Scotland from 1-7 November 2020 - in public spaces, over social media, among friends, families and communities, and in people's minds and hearts.

This year's will look different from previous years. Gatherings may be smaller. More might take place online. But the memories and human connections can be just as meaningful.
