Curious Pilgrims is an award-winning not-for-profit organisation based on The Shetland Islands, Scotland’s most northerly group of isles. We are interested in culture and the arts, in the natural world and environment, and the positive effect that these have on the wellbeing of individuals and society.
We collaborate with individuals and organisations to create a wide-range of projects, events and activities, designed to provide opportunities for public engagement and participation.
Through our work we seek mindful engagement with the arts and the natural world, and to improve awareness and sensitivity to Shetland's land and coastal environments, encouraging people to respect and protect them.
Storytelling and Music
Leviathan is a new series of performances and community workshops that bear witness to 200 years of stories and songs of Shetland’s former whaling industry and its transition to eco tourism, reinterpreting the tale of the whale through story and music.
With stories by Jan Bee Brown and music by Renzo Spiteri, Leviathan is part of this year's Scottish International Storytelling Festival, supporting Scotland's Year of Stories 2022.
