Magnus 900: the impact of a combined local anniversary and Scottish themed year on creative and academic outputs

Looking at the impact of local government led anniversary events on academia, tourism and creative outputs and how a practitioner who straddles two different worlds can manage this, using ‘St Magnus and Me’ as a case study. The anniversary of St Magnus (patron saint of both Orkney and Shetland) has provoked responses including academic research, the creation of the St Magnus Pilgrimage Way and creative outputs such as songs.
