Venue: Bellfield Centre, Stirling Health and Care Village, Livilands Gate, Stirling
Speaker: Hosted by Artlink Central, a locally-based creative organisation who design participatory and socially engaged arts and cultural projects. We’ll be based at the Bellfield Centre, and exploring the role of their commissioned artists in providing arts experiences that improve patients’ experiences and environments in NHS settings.
Fri 6 Dec, 9-10am
Venue: Macrobert Arts Centre, Workhouse
Speaker: Justine Bainbridge studied at Forth Valley College in Stirling and finished her degree at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland. She practices in kiln formed glass, textiles, porcelain, and watercolour, and much of her work is related to our beautiful Scottish coastal region and her roots in Orkney and Shetland. Her background is, however, in photography, and she received the commendation at the 2018 Scottish Portrait Awards, and last month, the Richard Coward Award to fund her current project of documenting the service lanes of Glasgow on analogue film. She is wildly passionate about primary research and sketchbook development, and how so many pieces can grow from this process.
