hubCAP DO OR DIE Events Programme

An enormous thank you to eveyone who attended and participated in this weeks hubCAP Gallery events held in response to the exhibition DO OR DIE by artist Samantha Dick.

Tuesday’s In Conversation with Samatha and CAPetc lecturer Alan Holligan provided and opportunity for the audience to hear about Samantha’s journey through the Art & Design dept at Edinburgh College, Glasgow School of Art before returning to the college as Artist In Residence last August.

On Wenesday the invited panel chaired by CAPetc lecturer Jennie Temple considered the themes raised through a series of presentations centred on their individual practice as artist, performers, researchers and educators. The Q&A that followed was considered, lively and informative for all and sets the bar very high for future events by the hubCAP team


  • Quinn Garrison: Doctoral Researcher at the University of Edinburgh examining the intersection between Posthumanism and Queer Theory
  • Oskar Kirk Hansen: Mutli Media and drag Artist
  • Bethany Parsons: Equalities Officer, Edinburgh College
  • Megan Rudden: Artist & Mlitt Candidate Glasgow School of Art


New Books etc…

Just back from the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) where our amazing Art & Design Subject Liaison Jennifer Ouson has a display of all our new acquisitions to the collection and the latest additions to the fabulous Zine Library!

I think its safe to say the collection at the Granton Campus is one of the best in any UK FE college!

The exhibition includes work by:

Martyna Jakubczak communicates the surrounding world from her perspective; people, everyday compositions and objects and recently has produced work that explores representations that aim to reflect childhood memories of her mother.

Greta Martyniuk is extremely interested in exploring identity and relationships with people and places.  Greta’s work focuses on her family history, heritage and the history of Poland, specifically the horrors of the Second World War.

Rowan Mitchell explores political and personal themes throughout her works. Rowan is passionate about political issues and uses her work as a tool to strike the audience and allow them to grasp a new perspective on the issues she considers very important to contemporary society.

 Victoria Rankin is inspired by current ideas connected to instant gratification and in particular the sex industry and online hardcore pornography. Exploring feelings of touch and sensuality, she hopes to communicate the rise of fetish whilst exploring disconnection from physical connection that seems to be reflected in internet culture.

Sophie Templeton has recently focused on themes connected to surveillance and the sensation of being constantly watched. Sophie has made links between horror culture and the societal effects that living in a monitored age has on the general public.

Fruzsi Uhlar is interested in the relationship between the body and space and her ideas and inspiration come from observations of the environment. Fruzsi has recently been intrigued by the concept of duality and the relationship between two opposing principles. Instagram: @uhlalafrufru
