The Thrive Archive’s curator Jan Bee Brown has been commissioned to create a creative ‘map’ celebrating Restalrig by TRACS (Traditional Arts & Culture Scotland) for their Parish Map Project.
Jan wants to hear your stories of Restalrig and discover more about the community initiatives like The Secret Garden and The Ripple Project and any projects you’ve been working on.
A series of postcards featuring Restalrig landmarks are available on the table in reception and Jan would love your feedback what the locals love, what they think the community needs more of and any stories or living or working in Restalrig.
The Bridge Pottery collective has set up a ‘seconds’ display in the drawing room on the third floor. All items for sale by donation (box on shelf), with proceeds going towards maintenance and equipment for the studio. We hope to open this up to the public in future but for now any tenants wanting to snap up a bargain piece of handmade pottery please come and take a look. We’ll be refreshing the shelves regularly in our efforts to reduce our environmental impact and waste.
Blunt Knife Co. is a new social enterprise based in Edinburgh that supports and promotes creative womxn. This month we launch our first project 20/20 HINDSIGHT, a showcase of writing, art and music by womxn creators.
For the most part, the last 12 months have been a steaming pile of shite, but from within the dung-heap brilliant artists have persevered and pushed out art that has enthralled us, inspired us, excited us and had us fist-pumping F*CK YEAHs to the universe.
From April 10 we’ll be bringing you a selection of 20 works by womxn that you may have missed amongst the chaos. It’s just a drop in a big pool of awesome, but think of it as a taste-test of Blunt Knife Co. and what we’re about.
