Shy Bairns is a risograph publication aimed to gather northern creatives in one space and show-case their work. Due to lack of resources and funding, accessible northern gallery spaces are limited; Shy Bairns creates a platform that doesn’t rely on institutional support for the promotion and creation of work. Started by Georgia Gibson, Eleanor Haswell, Erin Blamire and Izzy Kroese, the zine includes work from anyone who calls the North ‘home’, with contributors including first year degree students, MA graduates, and people who have never studied art. ‘Where’s Your Coat You’re Going To Be Cold’ is a showcase of various artists from the first and second issues of Shy Bairns, including a live set by sound artist Jennifer Walton (https://soundcloud.com/
