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

Panelists:

  • 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
