Have you seen the hoover?

The hoover from the 3rd floor has gone walkabout… have you seen it?
If you know where it is or have seen a hoover playing hide and seek, could you please return it to the 3rd floor office.

With sincerest thanks,
The staff that is missing their cleaning friend

Are you on the Residents Directory yet?

Residents Directory iconComing soon … a touch screen in the ground floor lobby displaying the residents directory…

*** Have you filled in your profile? ***

You can check by clicking on the residents directory, finding your floor and seeing if you are listed.

Clooti have been hard at work with the touch screen that will very soon be installed in the ground floor lobby. It will help guide visitors to your studio. If you haven’t got your profile on the residents directory, you should do it now. If you are having any problems, come to the 3rd floor office and our wonderful intern, Marie, will be able to help you through the process.

Let the Interns Play

poster exhibition-01-01Mario and Helena are two interns who came to St Margaret’s House three months ago. They have been working on several projects during this time. From Friday 26th of May they are going to show some of that work in different locations of the building for 3 days and on Saturday from 5pm come and enjoy the launch of their big project, St. Margaret’s House new interactive fanzine.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

If you ask somebody to visualise in their head an intern, probably an image of a student scampering around their co-workers nodding to everything they see and taking notes will pop up. Well, that’s completely wrong.

An intern can contribute with new ideas and more
