In July 2013, Tramway and Glas(s) Performance presented ALBERT DRIVE – Introducing you to your Neighbour; a large scale participatory arts project involving artists, volunteers, local businesses, residents, families, individuals and communities in a creative exploration into the idea of neighbour from the perspective of one street in Pollokshields, Glasgow.
…In the 25 years since Tramway opened, I have never seen the building so packed with people. And although community relations in Glasgow, as in most British cities, have been through good times and bad – and a single arts project, sadly, cannot change the world – it’s safe to say that this sunny weekend, in Albert Drive, was one of the good times and it was a pleasure and a privilege to be there.’
In January 2013, six commissioned artists joined the ALBERT DRIVE project with the shared aim to engage with people living on and around Albert Drive.
They brought with them a whole new set of skills and interests working across film, photography, installation, architecture, performance, dance and visual art in order to further explore the idea of neighbour from a whole new perspective.
