The renowned artist works with people of Easterhouse to create a landmark artwork
Last night saw members of the Platform Young Company perform News Just In Easterhouse, their co-production with Glasgow based theatre company Random Accomplice. It was a really fun evening as for one night only the news from across Easterhouse was broadcast live in front of a studio audience.
The show was directed by Random Accomplice’s Julie Brown, written by Platform Associate Artist Lewis Hetherington and featured original sound from Ross Brown and some short films from Jamie MacDonald.
Mary Gapinski and Julie Brown were joined onstage by Isabel Nichols, Neila Stephens, Jade Taylor and Marissa Bonnar from the Platform Young Company.
The performance featured numerous short films from the various community arts projects that Platform is currently supporting across Easterhouse as part of the People in Communities programme we are delivering in partnership with Blairtummock Housing Association.
For anyone interested the final film of the evening is available below.
Congratulations to all involved!
