This event is part of the project On The Table, devised and delivered by artist Ruby Pester. On The Table is a series of events that brings people together to create all of the parts necessary for a shared community meal. From growing the food, to designing and making the crockery, we invite people to Forgan Arts Centre to join us to design, make and create. On The Table is supported by Rural & Islands Communities Ideas into Action fund and aims to understand the impact of rural isolation and connect with those who experience it.
Ruby Pester is a visual and social artist living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. She has been creating work collaboratively across Scotland and internationally since 2008 and is one half of the collaborative artist duo Pester & Rossi. Her practice derives from visual art and leads to creating live art, sculpture, installation and public interventions in response to people and places. Ruby embraces a collective working approach, hosting public events and workshops, often working with young people to create art that explores and activates collective experiences of play, making and civic celebration.
