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.
This photo was taken at the very beginning of the process of learning how to screen print. I thought screen printing might be the best way, and most interesting way, to make
The Albert Drive Colour Chart and I needed to learn how to do it before I could understand if it was the right process, or not, to use.
Our first day was great – great for two reasons. The first one is that I got a much clearer sense of what and where and who Albert Drive is – how long and wide it is, how many people live on it, how it changes as you move along it, understanding north, south, east and west and importantly who lives and works where.
