this collection McEwan Hall showcase

this collection would like to thank the following people for helping to make our two-day showcase such a huge success!

First of all, none of it — and we mean none of it! — would have been possible without all the hard work and enthusiasm of the DMSP Masters volunteers, who dedicated hours and hours of manpower and creativity to making the event a reality. Also known as ThatCollective, these people are:
Simon Herron
Liam Boyd
Mousa Al-Rawahi
Marzieh Jarrahi
Liang Zheng
Yunika

We are also incredibly grateful for our contact at the University of Edinburgh, the fantastic Mr John Lee, and to the dream-team that is Mike Spells & Garry Gale of City of Edinburgh Library Services. Thank you for your patience, and your dedication to our project!

The evening could also not have happened without the input of the following lovely people:
The University of Edinburgh servitors
Glasgow School of Art
CRA:CC ensemble, in particular Nicole McNeilly and Liene Rozite
Dave Woods
Heather Bowry
Justin Vitello
Leon Crosby
Everyone who helped with or facilitated our free film workshops
in the run-up to the showcase.

Films made by members of the public during the workshops were inspired by the poems and films of Norman McLaren, Stan Brakhage, Rose Lowder, Standish Lawder, DA Pennebeker and Maya Derren.

But finally, we’d like to thank all our hugely talented poets and filmmakers, without whom this collection could not exist — and massive thanks to everyone who came along to the McEwan Hall to watch, listen, enjoy and respond. See you next time!
