As part of this year’s Wild Goose Festival, the Stove’s Conversing Building project has been engaging with Fife College learners based at HMP Dumfries. Sharing inspirations and prompts from the festivals theme of Keep Looking Up, the learners have worked through a variety of creative mediums to respond through both creative writing and visual mediums including painting and drawing. The works on display began during a creative workshop day exploring the background of the festival and it’s wider themes of migration, nature and of course, a celebration of our seasonal visitors – the geese!
The exhibition is a collaboration between The Stove Network, Fife College and HMP Dumfries. Stop by the Stove Café during visitor hours to have a closer look at the work created.
About Conversing Building
Conversing Building is an in-house Stove project that explores how communities and artists can interact with the Stove building and wider environments through visual means. Conversing Building considers all of the spaces in and around the Stove as potential locations for dialogue, activity and gathering.
The Stove Cafe hosts regular displays and exhibitions, both as part of the Stove’s activity and featuring ‘guest’ projects and artists with visiting works, conversational installations and displays – that seek to gather, share and create discussion in the town centre.
