Gorbals Culture Collective
From August 2021-2022 I undertook a year-long collaborative, community-based artist residency programme developed by Street Level Photoworks, as part of the National Culture Collective Project.
I worked alongside lead artists Bash Khan and to engage people across the Gorbals in creative projects. This ranged from a collaboration with local school children at the time of COP26 to express their relationship with trees, resulting in an award-winning short film By Leaves We Live, young people exploring their relationship to outdoor spaces through the camera lens in a collaboration with The Barn Youth Centre, street photography reflecting Gorbals Today; a creative social history project engaging residents of The Caley Road Flats, prior to their decant and demolition; and work supporting G5’s Got Talent, shining a spotlight on local talent.
This project culminated in an exhibition in Trongate 103 in September 2022.
