Silvery Tay-haired is an event that will be taking place on the afternoon of August 29 as part of a week-long celebration called Dundee Commons Festival (August 24-30).

And this is the call-out!

silverytay6-2

There will be a workshop (two dates to choose from) at the beginning of the week. This can be signed up for
here, where there is also more information about their purpose, info which I've pasted below in pink.

I've set up a
Silvery Tay-Haired Women Community page on Facebook. This contains discussion on the subject of to dye or not to dye amongst other things.

There has been a lot of press interest in this event. I travelled to Edinburgh to have a chat with Phil Miller, Arts Correspondent for
The Herald. That can be read here.

BBC Radio Scotland then got in touch and my conversation with Kaye Adams can be listened to
here. The relevant bit is 01:55.05 into the show.

The
Dundee Courier and the Blairgowrie Advertiser have also publicised the event more locally.

Here is the call out in a little more detail:

Calling all SILVERY TAY-HAIRED WOMEN !!

Do you have white, grey or silver hair?

Have you successfully resisted pressure to dye your hair?

What other pressures do you feel you’re under as a woman today?

On the afternoon of Saturday, August 29th, as part of the Commons Festival that runs in Dundee from August 24 to 30, a group of women will be stepping out along a silver carpet leading from Caird Hall to City Square. What will we be displaying on our placards? That will be determined by the workshops that will take place earlier in the week, an opportunity for white/silver/grey haired women to meet each other, establish common interests and find both voice and visibility.
In preparation for this great fun event you are invited to sign up for a workshop. Either Monday 24th August 12pm - 2.30pm or Tuesday 25th August.
The workshop will provide an opportunity to meet each other and to plan the event.
Placards might read:

“’NO AGE LIMIT ON THE COMMONS”

“YOUR DREAMING STREETS ARE OUR DREAMING STREETS.”

“DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS THE TRAGEDY OF THE COMMONS.”

“GET YOUR BOTOX OUT OF MY FACE.”

“SILVER HAIR DIAMOND WRINKLES”

Or even:

“NOW YOU’VE PISSED OFF GRANDMA.”

But I shouldn't try and second-guess the participatory process. Together, let us work out what we've got to say.
It is hoped that the event will lead to a series of stimulating discussions in City Square involving people of all age groups and both genders.

Please share this opportunity with as many women as you can.
Looking forward to meeting all of you at one of the workshops.
