Upcoming Events

New Out West Meeting (NOW) Presents:  Welcome to common/place, a collaborative art project presented by Mairi Gunn. Who will discuss with us her desire to remind each other of the potential joys of living in a neighbourhood where there are a wealth of friendships, stories and ideas. Mairi is creating a unique 360 degree Virtual Reality experience that allows us to sit at the kitchen tables of 3 neighbours as they talk about their lives in the community and their former homelands in Samoa, India and Zimbabwe. She shows us how this could unite us all as people.

We hope that, by sharing this, it will encourage relationship building between us all – especially in our own neighbourhoods.

Samoan storyteller, Pusi Urale of Riversdale Rd, Avondale, sits at her table with daughter Sima who is trying out the VR headset.
