North Lanarkshire’s Arts is proud to present an exhibition of work; video, film, photography, creative writing and soundscape which revisits the context of Ravenscraig in the wake of its inclusion as the Lowlands component part of the Scotland & Venice exhibition, A Fragile Correspondence as part of the 18th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, 2023.

Contributing artists/curators will include; Amanda Thomson, Frank McElhinney/Hamshya Rajkumar (Tine) and Andy Summers and Neil McGuire (Architecture Fringe).

We look forward to also presenting an extending learning event alongside the exhibition which will create further dialogue around The Craig at a more local level, with a focus on its industrial past, current re-development and a re-imagined future.
