New Exhibitions Open this Weekend

Imagine Being a World Leader by British artists DashnDem creates a fictional political event in order to allow young people to be heard, while exposing the methods of politicians and statesmen. The artists have been working with children from Blackness Primary School on a series of public speaking workshops which will form the inspiring, funny and thought-provoking content of the exhibition.
From the Edge brings together a series of video works by Danish artist Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen. This includes Tales from the Periphery a pair of films exploring the lives of young people who live in deprived parts of Europe.
A series of talks, workshops and events accompany both exhibitions beginning with Meet the Artists on Friday 7 September. The exhibitions run until 18 November 2012 are programmed in partnership with the Discovery Film Festival.
