About this Event

For this ambitious student-led project, Upmo students have contributed by creating a tree which started as a recycled tube. These were then decorated during workshops using a variety of techniques and materials. With over 100 trees in the installation, together they will create a bright forest, while each stands individually with the artists’ story, creative style and interests represented. In creating this, students discussed ideas of touch and community, as both individuals and a collective.

We Grow Together incorporates audio visual elements that create a sensory experience. As you navigate through the trees, you may even spot an imagined creature or two. The sensory installation includes projections by our photography students and a new soundscape to accompany the artwork.

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.

Upmo is a charity that provides support and opportunity to adults with learning disabilities and autism in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

The exhibition venue is accessible, on one level and has accessible toilet facilities. There is limited parking available outside the venue for visitors.
