Doors Open Day - 10th and 11th of September

We had a very successful weekend at the Engine Shed for Doors Open Day! As part of the event, we were exhibiting photographs taken by the participants on our Boom Town photography workshops. These workshops were done in collaboration with Historic Environment Scotland and Picture the Possible. The images taken were mainly of Victorian buildings around Stirling which most people tend not to give much notice to. The aim of the workshops was to engage the community with the town that they live in, and to give them the opportunity to become interested in Victorian architecture.

Originally produced as an installation within the Stirling Old Town Jail one year prior to the Independence Referendum, 'Solar Fields' used the new(ish) publishing platform of Twitter to gather short headlines in response to the above questions.

These powerful statements, both for and against the union, were composed by artists, writers, musicians and members of the public as the content for the prints on display.
