Event description

Description

Free. 15 places for 16-25 year olds

Location: Edinburgh Printmakers, Castle Mills, 1 Dundee Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9FP

Edinburgh Printmakers opened on its new site in the former North British Rubber Company HQ in 2019. We’ll visit the exhibition Deer Dancer by artist, composer and performer Hanna Tuulikki, a new audio-visual installation that examines representations of deer within dance across cultures. We’ll join a building tour at 3pm to discover the history of the Castle Mills site and take an exclusive look at the print studio.




This event is the first in a series of six sessions which forms part of a zine-making project about your experience of art and architecture, conceived as part of Fresh Fruit, The Fruitmarket Gallery’s peer-led programme for young adults aged 16-25. Zines are small self-made publications and can be about anything – what you did last week; the music or art you like; or political, personal and social issues. Quick and cheap to produce, they have a radical underground history where anything goes and different voices can be heard.

In collaboration with the Edinburgh Zine Library and Out of the Blueprint, you will design and produce a collective zine to be presented in The Fruitmarket Gallery bookshop’s pop up shop in Waverley Mall.

In the context of The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building refurbishment in 2019-20, the programme includes visits to recently developed arts and cultural spaces in Edinburgh to look at their buildings and exhibition programmes. We’ll also take an exclusive peek at The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building development in progress.

Creative content for the zine is up to you. No prior experience is necessary and you’ll be supported to develop ideas and pursue your interests to make a collective publication that could include exhibition reviews, photography, doodles and creative writing. Roles on the project include design and production of the publication, so there’s something for everyone interested in writing, drawing, art, buildings and professionally producing work for public display.

The project takes place over six Saturday afternoons followed by a launch event, and you can come along to one or all of the sessions.
