boom saloon is delighted to announce the launch of an exclusive giveaway for new and existing members to win a week’s retreat in the Scottish Highlands. The week long stay at Rocklea cottage, for up to five people, can be treated as an artist residency, retreat or holiday. 

Rocklea cottage is a stunning log house located within five acres of private grounds above the shoreline of Gruinard Bay. The winner of this giveaway can bring up to four guests to enjoy direct and private access to the beach and spot red and roe deer, pine marten, seals, otters and badgers from the sea view sitting room, complete with open fire. 

The giveaway is the latest and one of the most exciting opportunities to join boom saloon – a global media movement to democratise creativity for good. Profits raised through membership will enable boom saloon’s current work to rewrite the story of dementia. 

1 in 2 of us will be directly affected by dementia in our lifetimes; it is currently the leading cause of death in the UK. In spite of this, the general public are largely unaware of the dementia journey and how this can look for an individual following diagnosis. Many people with dementia feel their voice is taken from them and their true lived experience is rarely recognised or appreciated amidst a plethora of sensationalised headlines, medical jargon or scaremongering. Within this landscape, boom saloon collaborate with people with dementia and, together, play with words to give voice to their experience. They then share these words across their print publications, online features, newsletters and events – centring lived experience and using this to increase empathy and understanding in wider society. 

boom saloon members directly support this vital work and enjoy a series of exciting membership benefits in thanks. These include: 

– Connection to a global community of writers, photographers, filmmakers, architects, academics and designers shaping a more sustainable future for all 
– 10% unlimited discount on all items at the boom saloon shop
– Exclusive discounts from the boom saloon community around the world
– Access to boom saloon’s full archive of features
– Specially curated city maps and media playlists
– Free or discounted tickets to boom saloon member events, including meetups, collective viewings and workshops
– Optional access to boom saloon’s regular email newsletters, exploring the creative endeavours bettering our world

All new members who join by 12 July will be entered into a draw along with existing members for a chance to win a week’s retreat in the Scottish Highlands.
