A new animated exhibition - ‘An Easterhouse Children’s Manifesto' - is coming to the library at The Bridge on Tuesday 26 March and running until Saturday 13 April 2024 (closed during the Easter weekend). 

The exhibition is free and not ticketed - no need to book, just drop in.

Developed over a year long process of co-creation involving composer Brian Irvine and director John McIlduff (Dumbworld) and in collaboration with the children of Oakwood Primary School in Easterhouse and Red Note Ensemble – ‘An Easterhouse Children’s Manifesto’ is a collection of 7 musical animated video posters that explore ideas of personal autonomy, kindness and human connectivity from a child’s perspective.

The exhibition includes short video clips from pupils at Oakwood Primary School and friends from Easterhouse have been working on - join us to hear their thoughts and voices, expressing their views (in a fun way!) about today’s world: They Are Not Robots! Eat Strawberries! Listen to Your Dog! If local kids ruled the world, how would it look? 

Platform is delighted to support the exhibition coming to The Bridge and is very much looking forward to the exhibition launch on Tuesday 26th March at 11am.  Everyone is welcome and complimentary tea and coffee will be provided - free and drop in.
