IN THE SHADOW OF SHADOW

(PART 1: WALK/SCREENING)

The Strickland Distribution & Ultra-red
13:00 at Queen Victoria statue (with horse), George Square
Tickets Free: just turn up

WHO

Strickland Distribution (www.strickdistro.org), which inc. writer Neil Gray, editor of Variant (www.variant.org.uk) Leigh French and artist and programmer Simon Yuill, who may all be asking us: what does critical urban praxis look like?

PortraitInternational sound art collective Ultra-red (www.ultrared.org / www.publicrec.org), key ponderers on the use of listening.

WHAT

A public walk from George Square to the Barras market, bringing in contributions from researchers, activists and artists in a form of live critical praxis (time: 1–4pm approx.).

Followed by a screening from Document's archive of “Drumchapel – The Frustration Game” (20 mins, de-classed elements, 1989) and discussion (time: 4–7pm approx.) in Laurie's Bar, 34-36 King Street, Glasgow, G1 5QT (view map)

WHY

Local writers, artists, activists and academics will use the walk to highlight Glasgow's dubious drive for gentrification and raise fears about the consequences and threats this drive holds. Ultra-red make sound recordings of sites of struggle and contest, so that they can be used and analysed later in an activist/ artistic process; so they'll record the walk and sites (or maybe ask you to record them with them) we visit, as the starting point for collective discussions the following Sunday (Part 2).

WHERE

From George Square to the Barras.

WHEN

Meet at 13:00. Walk might take until 16:00. Screenings, talks, chatting etc until 19:00.

NOTES

It's an outdoor walk, which might take 2–3 hours, then a chance to catch up and chat somewhere near the Barras. So dress accordingly, something warm.
