On The Edge

 ‘On The Edge’ KeyWorker Projections 

A Collaboration with Bash Art Creative

Watch some of the KeyWorker Projection highlights produced by Bash Art Creative in collaboration with the Fair Access Department.

Throughout October and November of this year, a series of large-scale outdoor video installations were used to create creative portraitures and performances to explore the role of key workers, teachers, artists, and people who have made a significant contribution to our lives and communities in these testing times.

The portraits and performance workshops took place across Glasgow in localities such as Castlemilk, Drumchapel, Milton and Easterhouse. It was fantastic to see so many people come out and get involved with the project within their local communities.

Coming up next

You can get involved with our new workshops in 2022 if you live in Castlemilk and are interested in performance. Visit here for more information.
