Given Half A Chance

Saturday 23 June - Sunday 1 July
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Preview: Friday, June 22 at 7 PM – 9 PM
Music and performance evening
: Friday, July 6 at 6:30 PM – 9 PM

Given half a chance showcases the work of a mix of artists, brought together by their ability to react and respond to the unpredictability and precarity of artistic opportunities. 

Their works reflect and respond to this fleeting sense of presence and encounter through varying mediums. 

On the one hand their fragmented works create haunting moments of poignant reflection and unnerving irreverence. Whilst, on the other, they embrace the space before them as an opportunity to collaborate, display and discuss their works, creating an open space in which they show exactly what they’d do given half a chance…

Featured artists include: 

Tyler Blair
Shawn Bodden
Josh Corkill
Luke Thomas Edwards
Tessa Maudlin
Stephanie Wilson

Re:Connect Digital Drop-ins

Thursday 28 June
11:00 am - 2:00 pm

People Know How’s latest project supports people to realise their full potential.
Re:Connect is a service that provides free access to laptops along with volunteers to help people navigate online services.

At our Digital Drop-ins, we build up people’s confidence and ask them what they want to get from computers and the internet. We want people to know that if they want to do someone online but don’t know where to start, they can come to a drop in session to get some helpful advice. Whether they want to create a CV, find a cheaper utility provider, create an email account or look at entertainment we are there to help you do that.

Our volunteers come from a range of backgrounds with a variety of skills and experience, and we believe that people know how to find the answers to their questions
over a friendly conversation.

There are two drop-ins located at our office at 5.03 St. Margaret’s House.
Thursdays from 11am – 2pm
Saturdays from 11am – 1pm (1 st , 3 rd , 5 th Saturday of the month)
4pm – 6pm (2 nd & 4 th Saturday in the month) – in association with Feniks Counselling

Additionally we have drop-ins throughout the city at these locations
Monday – Streetwork 9:30 – 11:30am
Tuesday – Dr. Bells 11 – 2pm
Wednesday – Ripple Project 11 – 2pm
Friday – Starbucks Leith Walk (Shrub Pl) 2pm – 6pm 4pm

Iyengar Yoga - Level 1

Thursday 28 June
8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

This class is suitable for Beginners and those wishing to study the basic asanas (poses).
Iyengar yoga is suitable for everyone but is especially well suited to those who are stiff and to athletes. Regular practice will build flexibility and strength, while preserving the health of your joints. Over the term, you will be introduced to a full range of asanas, including standing and seated poses, twists, forward bends, balancings and inversions. You learn the actions required for the more challenging poses in the simpler ones and progress at your own pace, with full instruction and assistance and the use of props (bricks, chairs, blankets etc.) as required.
This class has a male teacher and is particularly popular with male students, although all are welcome!
