MYTHS a pin-hole camera and story-telling workshop

MYTHS a pin-hole camera and story-telling workshop
by Kelley O’Brien, SSW Exchange Artist in Residence
Wednesday 16th of August 2pm – 5pm
(Then join us for a bowl of soup in the bothy afterwards at 5.30pm)

Kelley O’Brien has been on residency at SSW for the past month exploring the myths and folklore of the Scottish forests and hills and how they can relate to our present understanding of our environment.
Kelley would love your help in predicting the future mythologies of Lumsden as part of the workshop on Wednesday 16th of August. Using homemade pin-hole cameras we will experiment with new ways of viewing our community as the foundation for writing myths about Lumsden from the prospective of the future.
The afternoon will run with a gathering and brief explantation of how to use your pin-hole camera, followed by time to explore the village and capture your images. Upon returning to SSW you will develop these images and write a myth explaining your photograph. Myths and images will be shared amongst participants at the closing of the workshop.

This is a free event, accessible to all. For any more information please visit our event page on Facebook or contact: arts@ssw.org.uk / 01464 861372

Artist-led activity: Exchange Programme

As part of Scottish Sculpture Workshop’s 2017 residency programme, SSW has launched a new series of part-funded residency awards to coincide with our AiR programme. The SSW Artist-led activity: Exchange Programme supports artists to undertake a month long residency to specifically focus on developing event or participatory based practices. SSW will host four artists working in this way over the months of May, June, August and September. For more information on the programme and how to get involved in events please contact: arts@ssw.org.uk/ 01464 861372.

This event is supported by Aberdeenshire Council, Creative Scotland and Marr Area Partnership.
