Platform is absolutely delighted to be supporting FARE with our Holiday Food Programme funding award.
The Made in Easterhouse Exhibition opens a month-long festival of the same name on Friday 30th September from 4pm.
The exhibition is running through until Sunday 27th November and celebrates ‘making’ in all its forms. Artist-in-residence Deirdre Nelson has spent a great deal of time working with local groups to discuss both contemporary and historical aspects of Easterhouse. As a result of this body of research Deirdre will create a textile inspired by the micro and macro in the location and history of Easterhouse.
New collaborations have emerged involving sound, photography and textiles with sound artist Jason Singh and photographer Colin Tennant.
Join Deirdre and some of the people that she has been working with this Friday to celebrate their work and kick off the festivities for the tenth month of our tenth year!
The Made in Easterhouse Festival features a great deal of work created here at Platform by our current Associate Artists and we’ll be introducing you to them and their work over the next few days - watch this space…
