To Absent Friends 2021

The To Absent Friends festival takes place across Scotland from 1-7 November 2021- in public spaces, over social media, among friends, families and communities, and in people's minds and hearts.

Due to covid-19, the festival looks a little different from previous years. There are more small, outdoor and virtual gatherings. But the opportunities to share memories and human connections are just as meaningful.

To Absent Friends exists to encourage participation – groups and individuals were welcome to take part in whatever way they felt appropriate.
