Friday 21st - Sunday 23rd October
Battery Park, Greenock
Approx 8pm - 9pm | Free
In Scotland’s Year of Stories 2022 and as part of the Inverclyde Galoshan’s Festival, TRANCND is proposing to illuminate the Clyde, the site of mass embarkation & arrival, with two light beams forming a SALTIRE during the Galoshan’s Festival.
The artwork will highlight and commemorate the movement of our people through the Clyde. From Highlands to Lowlands, from Ireland to Scotland, from Scotland to the Empire and from Europe & the commonwealth to Scotland.
The light will be transient, lasting for just an hour each night but will be visible from all the surrounding settlements with the beams projecting up to 5km into the night sky.

Containing never-before-seen mythical artefacts from the region, the new Museum is currently being installed at The Unexpected Garden, Greenock - a site of outstanding mythological energy. The team are working night and day excavating the site and will be ready to share their findings to the public on the 22nd and 23rd of October.
