House | Work is a new partnership project between Stills and Edinburgh Art Festival to explore themes of gendered perception within caring roles and the undervaluing of unpaid care. Through a programme of creative activity, in response to a new exhibition at Stills by artist Kate Davis, community groups in Edinburgh will create work in a series of workshops that will be showcased in an exhibition raising awareness of these themes.

Initial sessions will take place throughout May, June and July, offering groups the opportunity to work with an artist in a three-hour taster which will introduce working with photography, film or creative writing.

Following on from the taster sessions we will deliver a longer term creative project running throughout the summer where groups will have the opportunity to further develop their skills and discover all that Stills and the Edinburgh Art Festival have to offer through a series of practical workshops.

The work created in this series of workshops will be showcased in an exhibition raising awareness of the themes of undervalued and unpaid care.
