HERE+NOW were thrilled to be invited to form part of the programming for Hidden Door Festival 2015. Hidden Door is a not-for-profit arts festival that takes place annually in Edinburgh in abandoned or hidden locations. This years festival took place in a derelict building off King Stables Road near the Grassmarket in Edinburgh.
HERE+NOW programmed the Hidden Door Cinema space on Friday 29 with a series of short film screenings, exhibition and participatory installation along the theme of 'Connection to Place'. Films included PEP Talks, Joyce, Inshriach Bothy | A Sense of Place, and Hold Me Dear | The Film. The exhibition included photographic and short story works contributed by individuals worldwide about a place they treasure as part of the Hold Me Dear project as well as photographic prints from Jenny Humberstone and Ian Humberstone's artist residency with The Bothy Project. We also invited Hidden Door attendees to share a place they personally treasure as part of a live evolving participatory installation in the space.
For those of you that missed out on Hidden Door Festival or the HERE+NOW exhibition, we've a few of our photos below, including the HERE+NOW team having their portrait drawn by the talented James Sayer. These are also available via our Facebook page.
