Calling artists, therapists, community workers, educators and academics with an interest in alternative creativities! This two day programme of workshops, exhibitions, films and talks will explore the connections between Scotland's extraordinary art and non-professional or ad-hoc creativity in other fields.

Come join us to consider how such raw and intriguing art practices inform wider issues of health, culture and environment in Scotland.

Confirmed speakers and workshop-leaders include:

  • Joyce Laing OBE, acclaimed art therapist, collector and exponent of Scotland's Art Extraordinary
  • artists Joanne B. Kaar, Cameron Morgan and Scott Swanson
  • Dr. Cheryl McGeachan, Glasgow University
  • Dr. Tony Lewis, Curator of Scottish History and Claire Coia, Glasgow Museums Resource Centre
  • and adhoc architects

This event is organised by Cath Keay, Mike Inglis and Rachel Harkness of the School of Design at ECA.
