Firstly we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who expressed an interest in running workshops with us or getting involved in this collection’s huge community project with ALP and Tollcross Community Centre. We’re happy to say that we’ve had some brilliant proposals and we’re now ready to unveil some of the events we’ll be running during our stay at the Centre. Coming up before the end of January…

WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN EVENT?
We want to hear from anyone who wants to run their own workshop, host a meeting, screen films, exhibit art, put on a play, dance, sculpt or do anything else creative in our space. No proposal is too big, too small, or too strange. For more details visit http://bit.ly/dXqlS7 or email film@thiscollection.org

We hope to see some of you there!
