Tolbooth

In February 1994, with help from Stirling District Council, we secured occupancy for one month of the Tolbooth old prison in the old town. Seven artists created various installations throughout the building including the former robing room and cells.

With some local business sponsorship and the goodwill of local folks we organised an opening event which included live music and ceilidh, artists readings and performance.

The installation was featured on Radio Scotland and Central FM. In Artwork magazine, Giles Sutherland wrote of the show: Hanging Together consisted of thematically linked site-specific works which interacted meaningfully and forcefully with their chosen context... The exhibition represents the arts - again - working against adversity and begs the question: why are ventures of this kind, driven by enthusiasm and talent, not supported sufficiently?
