We were incredibly sad to hear that DOK Artists Space is being displaced and will no longer function in its current form in the Steel Shed at Ocean Terminal. Olivia Turner and our very own #CAPalumni Karen Fleming have worked incredibly hard to make DOK a significant and essential space on Edinburgh’s cultural map with a variety of exhibitions and events over the years.

Go along tonight to the opening of their last show Gone Fishing in the Steel Shed.

At the beginning of the second week in the bothy we were tasked with writing a proposal that would be relevant to everything we had done in the first week but also developing our specialism project we were all involved in. As you can see from the above image, we were all in deep thought this day and quite absorbed in our own projects so we didn’t take a lot of photos!

I can’t speak for everyone but I found it a bit difficult to consolidate what I’d learned in the first week into a proposal for my project. We gathered as a group in the bothy afterwards and had a mini-crit where we voiced what we were proposing to do. We had a discussion about how a proposal can be quite final and box you in sometimes with the idea of it so maybe next time it would be…
