City Focus: Edinburgh


This week's City Focus lands on Scotland's largest financial center and second most populous city, Edinburgh. As the historical and cultural attraction of Scotland, the city is full some of Scotland's most renowned music theatres, museums, and art galleries. Edinburgh will be hosting its 39th installment of PechaKucha Night on June 15th. We are all looking forward to more amazing content from Edinburgh. Hope to see you all there!

CRUMBLE MAGAZINE PROJECT


Crumble Magazine are holding an afternoon of open discussion to create an architectural ‘magazine wall’ full of your ideas responding to our theme ‘Conflict / Resolution’

 

Crumble’s method revolves around creation through discussion; the Crumble Magazine Project will involve open discussion and collaborative creation, leading to a ‘magazine wall’ full of ideas all in a single afternoon! The theme of our latest issue is ‘Conflict/Resolution’: how does conflict manifest on a local, national and international level and how do we even start resolving it? The afternoon’s challenge will be shaping these ideas into paragraphs, poems, doodles and illustrations, which we can bring together for reflection and consideration at the end of the day.

We are holding this event in conjunction with Crumble’s third issue ‘Conflict / Resolution’, due to launch June 2018.


Thrilled to have GRAS talking about the CUSTOM LANE SUMMER PAVILION:

A temporary, community-built summer pavilion, in the Custom Lane courtyard

Custom Lane & GRAS

Custom Lane and GRAS will work with Custom Lane residents and members of the wider creative community to design and build an experimental, temporary structure within the Custom Lane courtyard, responding to the theme Common Senses. The new structure will perform a variety of functions but, most significantly, will be designed to encourage regular use of the recently reclaimed public space. Where possible, found materials will be used and all materials will be capable of future re-use or recycling.
