Volunteer with The Aye Festival

Website Spit It Out Project

Spit it Out is an award winning charity aiming to build connections and provide a platform for discussions around trauma and healing through creativity, working off of 4 pillars;

Community Care
Self Compassion
Transformative Justice
Cathartic Creativity

To celebrate our first year we want to launch the charity with an immersive event; The Aye Festival! A series of event dedicated to tackling the stigmas around ‘taboo’ and difficult conversations through workshops, exhibitions, talks, live performances and screenings.

The Festival will be held across Glasgow, Edinburgh and Online. We will be hosting covering topics of:

Aye Consent – Consent and Boundaries
Aye Am – Identity
Aye Feel – Mental health
Aye Fuck – Sex
Aye Stand – Activism
Aye Move – Connection to the body through movement

The Festival will showcase not only incredible spoken word, visual art, dance and music by local and international artists but also interactive workshops from amazing local groups such as Skateboobs, The Better Sex Workshops and Intercultural Youth Scotland to name a few.

We are an embryonic organisation, having only received our charity status in July last year, run voluntarily by a group of young women and non-binary creatives. All the work we do is funded through fundraising and our ticket sales. We offer a sliding scale of £0-£10 for tickets and all money goes straight back into the festival and paying our creative contributors.

The dates of the festival are:
June 16th – 19th in Glasgow
June 20th – 22nd Online
June 23rd – 26th in Edinburgh
