We are delighted to announce an exciting preview event of We Grow Together, a new exhibition by Upmo students.
About this Event

Book your ticket for the Private View of this ambitious new installation, taking place in our Swanfield space in Leith, Edinburgh. Although open for a full week following, this evening is a chance to enjoy a lighting installation as well as refreshments served by our Upmo Eat students.

This exhibition is a sensory installation featuring over one hundred trees, decorated by students using a variety of techniques and materials, as well as an audio element by our music students. Developed during workshops, this student-led project has explored a variety of themes including touch, community and nature.

During Covid-19, we all collectively experienced the absence of touch and took solace in exploring outdoors. This is a celebration of the resilience of our student community during a difficult period, when Upmo was unable to operate an in-person service, as well to reflect on this challenging time through art.

After this preview, We Grow Together will be open for a full week for visitors, Monday - Friday, 10.30am - 3pm. You can book a slot via Eventbrite.

Upmo is a charity that provides support and opportunity to adults with learning disabilities and autism in Edinburgh & the Lothians. Through a variety of workshops and activities, we empower students to reach their individual goals and ambitions for the future.
