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 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.
Tashi and I went to meet the women at Roshni last week, and it was great talking to them about the project and hearing their ideas and suggestions. I’m going to be running photography workshops at Roshni in a few weeks, and will be introducing the ladies on how to use photography to document their day to life on Albert Drive.
