Over the course of the festival, 4 artists will each undertake a week-long residency in Bobby Niven’s studio-workshop, exploring ideas relating to the site, the structure and the wider ideas of Patrick Geddes himself. The resulting presentations will be presented over the duration of the festival. 

Deirdre Nelson works in collaboration with communities, employing the techniques and processes of craft, to engage with wider social and environmental issues.
