Laurieston = Transformational Regeneration Area (TRA) in Glasgow
Peter McCaughey – lead Artist of WAVEparticle and ‘Art & Living: Laurieston’
“Laurieston has seen unprecedented change over the last 20 years. Our approach in developing the art strategy for the area has been to try and unearth the hidden potential in the underused places and stalled spaces throughout.
“The SO IT IS exhibition (see below) is a fantastic demonstration of the potential these venues have as creative spaces and of the artistic talent in our city.”
Janice Russell – director of Urban Union (key partner in redevelopment of Laurieston)
“Our aim is to create a new community in this part of Glasgow and art plays a key role in creating new places and bringing that vision to life.
“Peter’s understanding of the area, its rich history and of how art can transform a community, continues to bring fresh approaches to the ongoing development of Laurieston.”
