Stills library will transform into an urban green space. Members of the public can learn about native wildflowers in our exhibition and participatory workshops.
Stills is located in the centre of Edinburgh. The GreenRoom will be open from Saturday 13 - Sunday 21 April, 11am - 4pm.
We are delighted to announce a new artist’s commission opportunity. An artist will be selected to spend time developing work at PYRUS’s walled garden on the outskirts of Edinburgh whilst also having full access to Stills’ production facilities. The commission will culminate in an exhibition at Stills from 13-21 April 2019 as part of the GreenRoom project. The winner will be announced soon!
