Lithuanian Days in Scotland, a festival aimed at fostering cultural, social and academic ties between the two North European nations, was held in Edinburgh and Glasgow on 22-25 October. Having succeeded in catching the interest of both the local Lithuanian diaspora and a Scottish audience the festival started on a musical note as two Lithuanian virtuoso musicians in pianist Petras Geniušas and multi-instrumentalist Liudas Mockūnas performed The Sea in The Forest improvisation. The piece was inspired by the symphonic poems The Sea and In the Forest by one of Lithuania’s most celebrated composers Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis (1875-1911).
Lithuanian Days in Scotland, a unique series of events showcasing Lithuania, will be held in Edinburgh and Glasgow 22-25 October 2019. Over four days, local Scots and the Lithuanian community in Scotland will be invited, together with leading Lithuanian figures from the worlds of culture and academia like prof. Tomas Venclova, Petras Geniušas and Liudas Mockūnas, as well as young people and their Scottish collaborators working in the creative industries, to delve into the search for historical, cultural, and socials connections between these two North European nations.
We would like to extend a warm invitation to join us this autumn for ‘Lithuanian Days in Scotland’. A journey of mutual reflection celebrating the connections between our two countries, the programme will explore the many ways these ties have manifested themselves across the centuries: what can we learn from our histories, what sources of inspiration we share, and how we, the people of small nations in Northern Europe, might address the pressing issues of our European homeland and beyond.

The Inimitable Baltic Way - a chain of 2 million people, 600 km long, connecting Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia 30 years ago. The purpose of this peaceful political demonstration was to show that the aspirations for freedom and democracy in the Baltic countries were never quenched, that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was meaningless to the people who wanted their countries to be independent. Let us look again at this significant moment in history, when the world clearly heard the words of a strong and united Baltic.
