BOOM PROJECTS: THE CREATIVE RIOT

In collaboration with Boom Saloon and WPK Architects. Images by Holly May Photography.

‘A LIVE COMMUNITY BLOCK PARTY – WITH ALL THE ENERGY, RAW TALENT AND SENSORY ASSAULT THAT IT BRINGS WITH IT…’

We provided set design and construction for boom saloon magazine’s Creative Riot, an event celebrating the diversity of talent amongst Edinburgh’s unsung youth. Powerful stories were told through a combination of parkour, dance, spoken word and music; voices too often overlooked were given a platform to speak up.

The setting was Leith Theatre, until recently an abandoned 1930’s cultural institution in North Edinburgh that as part of Hidden Door 2017 we helped to breathe new life into.

Creative Riot will provide the central inspiration for the next issue of boom saloon.
