From Here was the culmination of a brilliant several months working at Lyra Theatre with a group of young people in Craigmillar and Niddrie in Edinburgh.
The young curators project brought together a group of artists from various disciplines to make work in response to the physical landscape, local history and stories from young people local to the area.
The final outcome of my work was this music video which was very much a group effort, conceptually and practically. Lots of the best ideas in the film came from the young people and they helped to conceive, plan and create the finished film. One memorable day we got up at 3am and climbed Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh to film as the sun came up.
From Here culminated in an exhibition by the artists involved. Each showing their final work created in collaboration and consultation with the From Here young people.
