Appears throughout the evening between 6pm - 8pm
As part of RIG Arts Street Parties | Free

Collect your special cloak and become a Tallestian. Join the Galoshans Festival Street Party as the tallest person and discover what you can see in the world from up high! The Tallest is a participatory project where a child and an adult are encouraged to become a Tallestian. It asks the child to sit on their parent/guardian’s shoulders, then we wrap them with a specially designed cloak. The Tallest offers a new perspective, movement and personality of a very Tallestian for the participating children (and grown-ups).

This event will take place as part of the wider RIG Arts Street Party celebrations on the following dates and times:

Friday 28th October | Train Station Car Park, Gourock
Saturday 29th October | The Shipbuilders Sculpture, Coronation Park, Port Glasgow
Sunday 30th October | Cathcart Square, Greenock
All events 6pm - 8pm | Free

See the RIG Arts Street Parties page of the web-site for more details.
