WochenKlausur project in Glasgow

Tags |

For the month of February I am have become part of the WochenKlausur team based at the CCA, joining Martine, Claudia and Karol from Austria.

WochenKlausur was invited by Kirsten Lloyd and Angela Dimitrakaki, curators of the “ECONOMY” exhibition presented at the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Glasgow and Stills Gallery in Edinburgh to do a residency on the theme of participatory economics.

Using the Creative Lab space as an office for the month we are working intensively (WochenKlausur, an invented word translates approximately as a weeks closed situation or focused working session) to collaborate with a group of women in Drumchapel to set up a business that addresses employment and health needs in the community. The local partner for the project is Drumchapel L.I.F.E, a health and wellbeing organisation and we are pulling together a team of professionals, experts and like minded individuals and organisations to work with the women to give them business advice and mentoring to practical skills and support.

WochenKlausur have been working as a collective for the last 20 years and have worked on projects round the world conducting social interventions for example a clinic for drug addicts, a cinema for immigrants and language classes for refugees of the Kosovo war.

The Creative Lab is open for visitors Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 2 – 6pm throughout February. Drop in and have a chat about what we are up to.
