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.”
