Nowhere Art Club

Nowhere Art Club is a free art and dance club led by Skye’s 14-17-year-olds and Molly Danter – a dancer, artist and storyteller from Edinbane.

Taking place across a range of venues in Portree – outdoors, at the Oyster Table in Bayfield, under canvas, on walks and in large indoor spaces – and when necessary online, to get together safely to create and make.

You don’t need to have an interest in art, dance or music to take part. This is a space to chat and do something creative together. 

This club is a space to experiment, to make things up, to pretend and reinvent. We might use movement, writing, collage, dance parties, drawing and bookmaking, but it’s up to you. You decide what you’re interested in making, doing and talking about. Participants will receive a welcome pack which will include materials for making, including a notebook and disposable camera.

If you’d like to get involved send an email molly.thespace@gmail.com for more information, or pop by at our next in outdoor session.

About Molly Danter:

Molly Danter began dancing with SkyeDance at Portree High School, and studied dance at London Contemporary Dance School, including a semester at Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance. After that, she worked with Scottish Dance Theatre first as an apprentice dancer then for a short time as guest dancer. Since then she has worked as a freelance dancer, maker and teacher in the UK and Europe.

As well as dance, Molly works with text and film and often collaborates with other artists. She is especially interested in the relationship of self and other, and empathy plays a large role in how she approaches making, leading and performing work.
