The Young Stove’s Day Out

The Young Stove have been busy making plans for their next projects this year, we are looking forward to exciting times ahead! To kick start the year, we organised a trip up to Glasgow – to get inspired, and get some tips and ideas from creatives based in the city at various stages in their careers, as well as getting a bit of a flavour for the art scene in some of the city’s galleries. Big thanks to Alison McLeod at Briggait’s WASPS sutdios, Gregor Wright at the Modern Institute and Genevieve Kay Gourlay at the Pipe Factory for taking time out to chat to us about their artistic careers.
