Can’t wait until the 15th anniversary Colony of Artists festival opens its garden doors on 19 September 2020 to see our entire new festival exhibition Windows and Screens at Abbeyhill Primary School? Can’t wait to see our new festival exhibition which has taken over the windows of the school and the area while reaching out to the screens at your fingertips?
Following our POLSKI preview, here is a small glimpse of another screen-based part of our exhibition which can otherwise keep you watching and listening for hours. Enjoy this new video release on any screen near you. It brings you edited highlights from our Colony of Artists festival finale at Abbeyhill Primary School’s Assembly Hall on 22 September 2019. A reminder that whilst the Assembly Hall is out of bounds due to the smallest biggest disruptor, we can at least relive this memorable evening packed of drama and dance, stories and shanties.
We have dedicated this video documentation to the memory of the school’s alumnus and football legend Billy Hunter (1940-2020) who sadly passed away on 4 August 2020. Look out for Billy’s cameo appearance in the last year’s festival finale, having generously contributed to our Abbeyhill Soundscape app and Abbeyhill School Through the Years book! Just jump to 10:55 minutes in to hear Billy talk about Abbeyhill, the terrific school!
