3 months of participatory Polish projects at the Collective Gallery.
The Collective is extending a welcome to Edinburgh's newly immigrated Polish community. During this season of exhibitions and events we hope to provide a platform for cross-cultural investigation, participation and collaboration.

PREVIEW: Friday 8th February, 7-9pm. All welcome.
EXHIBITION: 9th February until 22nd March.
This exhibition will be supported, through our One Mile Programme, by a series of collaborations between Polish and Scottish poets, writers, visual artists and musicians, every Thursday for the duration of the exhibition: Scottish/Polish Cultural Stimulation devised by Arek Kozak.
A FREE film club: screening films which have been selected by artists involved in the One Mile Programme.
