An exhibition of work from RIG Arts projects - Recycle Upcycle, Open Studios and Lee Jeans Sit In.
Recycle Upcycle, funded by People's Health Trust, is a community project promoting recycling and upcycling - giving a new lease of life to old materials and items. See the colourful results of our ice and eco dying workshops, as well as a special banner created just for Galoshans Festival.
Open Studios, part of Inverclyde's Culture Collective, is an art project for young people who are interested in pursuing a career in the arts. Led by our professional tutors, they have been learning about sculpture, ceramics, fine art, printmaking and more. A selection of their impressive outputs will be on display.
Lee Jeans Sit In, funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund, is a project celebrating and creating a legacy for the event when hundreds of workers barricaded themselves in the Lee Jeans factory amid fears it would be closed. Featuring photographs, articles, creative outputs and more!
