This event will consider performance as it plays out in the two exhibition sites with writer and director Julia Lee Barclay-Morton whose theatrical lab’s and open scripts offers the possibility of embodying the many voices and ideas that exist inside of any/body and can embrace/embody/hold space for the unspeakable.

The event will begin at Platform and finish at Glasgow Women’s Library. (Bus provided).

Amanda Thomson is a visual artist who has a longstanding interest in the Scottish Highland landscapes and how places come to be made. Her arts-based PhD, from UHI/ the University of Aberdeen, is about the forests of Abernethy and Morayshire. Amanda’s work is about how we are located (and locate ourselves) in the world. In her explorations of home, migration and mapping there are many rich intersections with the themes in Home Where Home Is Not. All three artists will share responses to this exhibition and the questions raised by Amanda Thomson’s rich creative practice.
