Time and Place

Magic Torch are pleased to announce that we have been successful in receiving £8900 support from Awards For All Scotland for our project Time and Place. This project will explore creative responses to the past and future of Inverclyde, using a variety of media. Local people will be involved in a range of creative activities and the project will culminate in a month long exhibition in The Dutch Gable House. Elements of the project include...

Snapshots of yesterday ; Acclaimed photographer Alastair Cook will run a community workshop on the art of Victorian collodion photography, in which local volunteers will create their own photographs. Alastair will also curate a selection of portrait photos for the final exhibition, contrasting older photos with the new ones created.

Restorations (Greenock Plans Ahead) : A Greenock corporation film made in the 1950s to show post war reinvention and investment opportunities will be re-edited and a brand new contemporary soundtrack provided by award winning band British Sea Power.

Postcards from tomorrow : Community groups and schools will be invited to send postcards describing or illustrating life in the area in 20, 50, 100 or 200 years time.

What You Leave Behind : Through a series of community workshops, a new science fiction comic strip set in the Inverclyde of the future will be created and published digitally.

The project and associated exhibitions will be running throughout September and October and we'll be sharing more details on each of the projects soon. Meantime, here's a wee teaser...
