Video Documentation of the ‘On The Edge’ Projection project.

Over the last year we have been developing a visual art project that explores the definition of key workers and celebrates citizens who have made a huge impact in our communities. Using portraiture and these images were projected on to buildings in around Glasgow to celebrate the contribution made by key workers from across the city.
Phase 1 involved working with communities from Castlemilk, Drumchapel, Easterhouse and Milton. We set up a public page that invited nominations to highlight key workers from each of these communities and we documented 50 key workers.
The ‘On The Edge project explored themes around representation and public agency over spaces: How can the public realm and empty buildings be re-used for the benefit of communities in a ‘post-covid’ world? How can we get away from internalised environments? and How can we change the narratives of what our communities represent?The specific areas and buildings that we project our films include gable ends, green spaces and disputed land.People and places that are ignored and left on the periphery by political decisioons, and are being highlighted through public projections.On the Edge aims to celebrate people in our communities, the key workers of the city who are the backbone of our everyday lives and who should be at the heart of our social planning, support and thinking.It has been my absolute privilege to spend time with these amazing people and to hear their stories, a truly humbling experience.
A huge gratitude for the communities of Castlemilk, Drumchapel, Easterhouse, and Milton for hosting these events and bringing such joy to the evenings. Thanks to Douglas Bunge,Jen Martin, Iman Tajik, Fran Higson, Ahmed Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for all their help and support. To all the amazing key workers. Respect and love.#ontheedgeprojections #glasgow #keyworkers #Castlemilk #Drumchapel #Easterhouse #Milton #visualart # Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Bash Art Creative.
