It was in early 2021 that I began a series of interviews with creative people living and working in Dumfries and Galloway. I have carried on ever since. The stories and experiences you’ll find here are testimony to the rich and varied cultural landscape of the region I am delighted to call home. It’s a steadily growing archive and I’m grateful to all of those who have taken part.
