Distanced Assemblage is a collaborative, artist-led initiative based in Glasgow, Scotland. Our goal is to make a positive impact in the wellbeing and visibility of people from diverse cultural and social backgrounds by providing opportunities to engage in art making.
Responding to the current social distancing measures and the closing of public spaces, we have come up with an exiting project that comments on the value of art, public spaces, scarcity of materials, art as documentation and archiving.
Participants will be asked to create a piece of work with a provided set of materials, instructions and resources.
This exciting project was part of the International Refugee Week, themed ‘Imagine’ for the 2020 edition. We invited adults and children of all ages to create a paper lantern house to share their solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers during the difficult times generated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
