The To Absent Friends festival will take place across Scotland from 1-7 November 2017 - in public spaces, over social media, among friends, families and communities, and in people's minds and hearts.
To Absent Friends is not like traditional, curated festivals. It exists to encourage participation, and it is non-prescriptive – groups and individuals are welcome to take part in whatever way they feel is appropriate.
We are currently building up the programme of events for this year - please get in touch if you are planning something and would like us to list it on this website.
