SCDLND AND ITS \ PEOPLE —WHAT’S HAPPENING TO US?
‘How can we understand our culture it we don’t know its history?’ This is the question Education Workers Stan Reeves and Rob Roon have been trying to address with projects they have initiated at Edinburgh’s Adult Learning Project in Gorgy/Dalry. Past projects,
all or which have been based on everyday popular concerns, include television humour and soap operas.
Following the principles oi Brazilian educator Paulo Friere, they have traditionally used photographic images as local points to stimulate discussion. Images must, however, rellect local experience il they are to provoke uselul communication. To this end, they have already collected a library ol several thousand images.
Anyone is welcome to become involved in the current project, which besides promoting learning in the iield of portrait photography (see listings) has begun investigations oi contemporary Scots literature and traditional music. The weekly meetings are tree, and resources and materials are supplied.
The ultimate aims are to provide education and publication resources, to mount a major exhibition lor Glasgow 1990 and to initiate a national adult education programme. It you wish to participate, or want more details, contact Stan Reeves or Rob Noon on 337 5442.
