Join us for a creative writing session inspired by Stills current exhibition.
The session will start with poet Samuel Tongue reading short pieces of fiction and poetry aloud with the group. You will then be given the chance to try your hand at some relaxed creative writing in response to the exhibition itself.
No previous writing experience necessary and all welcome to this informal session.
Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen film screening and Q&A
Stills is delighted to welcome Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen to Edinburgh for a screening of the film, ‘Today I’m With You’ (Amber, 2010). Arising out of Konttinen’s project, ‘Byker Revisited’ (2005), the film follows her return to Byker, now the Byker Wall Estate, to record the lives of a community that she first began to document in 1969. The film will be introduced by Konttinen and will be followed by a Q&A with Ben Harman, Director of Stills.
