Speirs Locks Summer Party / by Martyna Maz

Well, the weather was good, on and off but the clouds cleared off in the evening to reveal lovely summer sunshine and an after party at the Whisky Bond with the collaboration from the Glasgow Sculpture Studios and TAKTAL. 

Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS) was established in June 1988 and is a unique centre for research, production, presentation and the dissemination of contemporary sculptural practices. GSS occupy the Ground, First and Second floors of TWB and have a variety of artists studios and wide range of facilities including metal and wood workshops, ceramics, project spaces that are available for use by members and commercially. 

There was a small exhibition of the most recent works from GSS as well as an introduction to TAKTAL initiative, just across the canal from TWB building. 

[TAKTAL is] an agency that initiates the creative use of space.
[The] practice is founded on the understanding that successful projects are not just about the design of buildings, but the activity and people that inhabit them.
With roots in architecture, programming and space management [they] design spaces, communications and business models that create sustainable outcomes.
[The] work ranges from self initiated research, producing events and working with clients to develop workspaces and arts venues.

It was a fun filled day and night. Surely an event to check out next time ;)
