Link Living Bake Sale

On Friday the 6th of December Link Living are hosting a bake sale at their 3rd floor office (next to the library) in St Margaret’s House between 3pm and 5pm.

All goods will be baked and served by their volunteers who are vulnerable young people between the ages of 16-25 who used to or still engage with support at LinkLiving, and who now also help us with our courses, peer education and mentoring in schools and other events.

All of the money raised will be used to pay for training, events and other things that will help the personal development of their young people.

Pop along for some tasty afternoon treats!

Christmas Makers’ Market Pop-Up Exhibition

5th December – drop off works to the gallery

6th – setup (Marcin will curate and hang all the artworks)

7th – the market and exhibition open to audience from 11am until 5pm

8th – all works need to be collected

Each artist will have to prepare their own labels with name, title, medium and price. Each artist can bring 2-3 pieces, however Marcin can’t guarantee that all of them will be showcased (depending on how much space will be available). The exhibition is a good opportunity for artists to promote their art so I would encourage everyone to have business cards next to their works with contact details. In case of any purchase artists will have to deal directly with the customer.  It’s a good opportunity to talk to potential clients. We don’t take any percentage from sales and there’s no fees for participation. The exhibition is for the tenants only. For any questions artists should contact Marcin via email or pop in to the office.

We require volunteers to help with the invigilation of both galleries, please get in touch if this is something you would be interested in.

Rendition Preview

Invitation To Edinburgh Palette

I would like to invite you to a preview launch of Rendition, a radical new work from Tragic Carpet Visual Theatre Company – Friday 13th September in Edinburgh, 10.30am-12.20pm.

Rendition is a potent and immersive installation which uses detailed, up-to-the-minute academic research findings from The Rendition Project to tell the story of one man’s nightmare experience as the first suspect to be taken into the CIA’s detention programme. Freda O’Byrne, artistic director and sole performer, uses an innovative mix of puppetry, soundscapes and theatre to visualise the human rights violations committed by US and UK governments in the aftermath of 9/11 – and explores the juxtaposition between extreme vulnerability and absolute power. See the trailer here.

In partnership with Freedom From Torture Edinburgh, the preview event will provide the opportunity to visit the installation within the gallery, meet the creative team and view the accompanying immersive performance. Tickets are limited so please register here.

“…a profoundly moving piece of total theatre… beautiful, exquisitely made show driven by a quiet but fierce sense of humanity and compassion”

Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman ★★★★

“At a time when we await the outcome of a Scottish police investigation into the use of Scottish airports for rendition, and after the UK Intelligence and Security Committee published a devastating report into the extent of British involvement in torture, many issues remain unresolved”

Professor Ruth Blakeley, The Rendition Project (It is anticipated that Professor Blakeley will be able to attend the preview and discuss these issues.)

Rendition will tour Scotland in autumn 2020. The performance is ideal for galleries, community spaces, studios and exhibition spaces, and can work in theatres too. Please get in touch for more information.

Eid at Northfield Community Centre

A number of partners have organised an event for local people to celebrate Eid, the end of the holy month of Ramadan for Muslims. The community event will be held at Northfield Community Centre this Sunday 16 June from 12-3 pm. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!

We have been working with a commissioned stained glass artist (David Mola) to make a large scale artwork with local people from a variety of backgrounds. This piece will be unveiled on the day, with storytelling to accompany. Other elements to the day will include a dance workshop, free falafel & drinks (made by Syrian refugees in our locality) and a marketplace with lots of stalls.
