This year our project is called COLLECTION & ARCHIVE.
We've been exploring the work of artists Gordon Douglas and Andy Holden and how their exhibitions use unconventional spaces and we've been thinking about ways in which our own creative archive can live on in Shetland and beyond. We've been thinking about what a collection means, why people collect things and we've discovered what our friends like to collect at home.
