The Silver City Story continues...

'The Welcoming' is a three-phase project undertaken by Angela Main and Peter McRae (Da Dee At Festival) linking up with the local community, culminating in a performance art work at the anti-tank blocks at Balgownie Beach: a work which would aim to transform or subvert the original, overt defensive purpose and nature of the site, to be a contemporary reflection on its historical installation and usage.
