Edinburgh’s MESP Festival 2011

Posted by +Bellydancingbarbie on February 17th, 2011


This years MESP festival is warming up with the Middle Eastern Film Festival at the Filmhouse screening a variety of films & this time round focusing on Turkish cinema. The film festival will also host a workshop on Turkish cinema history & themes.

The Pre Events this year are again very varied and notably include a Bellydance Hafla with 3 course dinner and talk/performances from Lorna Gow. You may have already seen the details in our calendar on the Learn page. It’ll be a great night, I’d go but I can’t get there in time!

The Main Events & Exhibitions and displays are too many to list, lots of interesting things happening, many discounted. One which stands out to me is “Health, Well-being and Healing Through Spiritual Dance and Movement”

Last year I enjoyed facilitating workshops in the MESP Festival Pre Events, my favourite was our “Awakening Spirituality Through Feminine Dance” – if you were there I haven’t forgotten your request for regular spiritual dance classes! It was such an incredible experience we shared it’d be a sin not to follow it up!  ;)

Check out the MESP, get cultural and learn something new about yourself too!
