‘A cèilidh (Scottish Gaelic pronunciation: [ˈkʲʰeːlɪ]) or céilí (Irish pronunciation: [ˈceːlʲiː]) is a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering. In its most basic form, it simply means a social visit. In contemporary usage, it usually involves dancing and playing Gaelic folk music, either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place.’

Mia & Trinity – BE United Youth

Following a visit to Trinity House Maritime Museum with her primary school, 11-year-old Esther Goliath was inspired to write a book about the experience. The result of a creative and mentoring process hand in hand with BE United is the children’s book ‘Mia and Trinity’.

The book is not only an example of Esther’s creative drive and talent, but also a tool for kids to connect with local history and heritage. Written in collaboration and with the support of Trinity House, ‘Mia & Trinity’ highlights some of the artifacts of the museum, connecting Leith’s history with its future through children’s creativity. The project from start to finish is a beautiful example of synergy between formal education, cultural participation and community engagement, were each actor had a key role in facilitating the development of Esther and nurturing her talent.

As part of ‘Mia & Trinity’ book project, 2019 will see Esther in a small book tour visiting schools and youth groups to talk about the inspiration behind her book and how she pursued it from idea to actually writing the book.

The aim of the project is to publish the wonderful book written for young people by young people and to engage with other young artists, encouraging them to follow their creative passions.
