Creative Communities 2021 – Artists in Residence

Creative Communities 2021 – Artists in Residence

Tricky Hat has been selected to build on our 2019 residency in Ward 23 Partick East / Kelvindale with the next phase of the Creative Communities: Artists in Residence residency taking place between January and June 2021. We’re inviting people to collaborate with us to create an immersive audio walk of the area. From Dumbarton Road through Hyndland, around Kelvinside, skirting Gartnavel Hospital, wandering the Botanic Gardens and walking through Kelvindale.

To get you started – You can take part in our 3 mini audio journeys and send us your thoughts, responses and ideas to

Have you got stories you’d like to share – where do you like to walk or visit , what places are special to you?

Where are the spaces in-between? What are the stories we could tell?

From February to June, you will have the chance to collaborate with our artists through a series of online workshops to develop your stories and ideas and create the journey connections.  We’ll launch Round Our Place – an immersive audio walk over a summer weekend in June, 2021

So, if you’ve got stories to tell – real, imagined, historic, stories that have yet to happen or stories you think the world should hear – we would love to hear from you. If you are interested in being part of this multimedia project, please email
