Renfrewshire Witch Hunt 1697

Working with 10 young people in Renfrewshire who are long term unemployed and funded by Heritage Lottery’s Young Roots programme, Fablevision collaborated with Erskine Theatre Company, One Chance Solutions and other members of the Creative Renfrewshire Network to research the links between the  Christian Shaw who had 7 citizens of Renfrewshire put to death for Witch Craft in 1697 and the burgeoning of the textile industry in Renfrewshire. Establishing an annual re enactment event to commemorate the history, the young people were supported to develop a touring exhibition and educational programme that visited schools, community and social work centres throughout Renfrewshire
