EDINBURGH: Ready? Flyte!

Date: Wednesday 7 June, 2017
Time: 6:00 PM
Price: Free
Venue address:
43-45 High Street, Edinburgh EH1 1SR

Publicity material for this event says:

Ready? Flyte! is an event that concludes the flyting contest In Search of New Makars. The main attraction of the evening will be an exchange of finely crafted insults between two stand-up poets. 

To join as audience you can do one or both of the following:

  • Help the HDC Team build the final presentation by sharing feedback on your favourite submission (submissions and online feedback form can be found  here). The most helpful feedback will include a short explanation of how, in your view, the submission engages with distributed cognition approaches.
  • Come to the event and help select the winner.

To borrow a line from Dunbar ‘The earth shall tremble, the firmament shall shake…’ The final flyting will be preceded by a talk highlighting the most fascinating connections between flyting and distributed cognition - that is, the ways our minds extend across brain, body and world, or in this case the way our minds can be shaped by blether, and the to and fro of banter.
