A Social Residency
1st – 29th September, The NewBridge Project
Throughout September artist Gordon Douglas stayed at HMO while he was undertaking A Social Residency with The NewBridge Project as part of Practice Makes Practice. It was a good opportunity to spruce up the guest bedroom. We enjoyed sharing time, food and ideas with Gordon and we look forward to hosting him again soon.

He served on the Transmission committee between 2013-15, and has since been working on several self-initiated projects focused on the limits of collaboration and the performativity of the social. He is currently working with Platform, Easterhouse and Edinburgh College towards an understanding of the performance of coexistence.
