In yet another foray into the community CAP2 recently embarked on a project in collaboration with the Settlement Projects community shop in Leith Walk. Participants in the project were tasked with selecting an object or objects from the shop and through a process of research and development effect a change in relation to their chosen object.
The intention of the project was to bring a new, alternate or enhanced understanding to the selected object. The change could be physical, conceptual or contextual.
At the end of the project the transformed objects were represented in an exhibition organized by the participants.
We would like to thank the Settlement Projects Shop for their assistance, patience and continued support for the Change Project and we look forward to working with them again in the future.
