The Regenerators: Publication Launch & Artist Talk
For Glasgow International 2018, Mick Peter, together with a group of young people from across the west of Scotland, has created an 80m long ‘billboard’ to cover the empty facade of a historic former gas purifying shed in the East End of the city in The Regenerators.
During the development of The Regenerators Mick Peter and the young people have created an accompanying publication, designed by Matthew Walkerdine of Good Press, and Peter and the young people will be in conversation with Walkerdine to launch this publication.
The Regenerators is commissioned by Glasgow International, Year of Young People 2018 and Festival 2018 — the cultural programme of the Glasgow 2018 European Championship. Supported by Clyde Gateway and Glasgow School of Art’s Widening Participation Department.
