Pete chats about his first visit to Platform and his current projects
Beginning on Friday 30th September, we are celebrating the tenth month of our tenth year with our Made in Easterhouse festival. Lasting the whole of October 2016, we present performance, music, visual arts and participation.
The following exhibits and performances are being featured as part of Luminate: Scotland’s creative ageing festival. Luminate is an annual festival that takes place across the length and breadth of Scotland each October, offering the chance to celebrate creativity, share stories and to explore what age means to all of us.
This exhibition kicks off the Made in Easterhouse festival. The exhibition is a celebration of creativity in Easterhouse past and present and ‘making’ in all its forms. Artist in residence Deirdre Nelson was inspired by the groups and individuals she met during residency and so presents a collective selection of objects which represent the diverse place that Easterhouse is in terms of location, heritage and people.
Fri 30 Oct - Sun 27 Nov
Wild Life is a live performance that is a meditation and celebration of wildness. Devised and performed by a collective of three children and five adults, and directed by Sarah Hopfinger, this is a fun, playful and wild inter-generational performance, which sits between dance, live art and contemporary performance.

We are delighted to host this traditional tea dance led by a live band. With dance instructors on hand, tea, cakes, guest vocalists and more than enough quicksteps, foxtrots and waltzes to satisfy first-timers and veterans alike. Our auditorium will be transformed into an amazing ballroom featuring beautiful handmade art works and objects created by local people in collaboration with our artist in residence, Deirdre Nelson.
