‘Silk Road': Documentary Screening this Friday, the 5th of February @ 6pm!

We are delighted to have Daria Akimenko in residence at the TDC this week. She has been workshopping a project entitled ‘Shop Around the Corner’, which engages with stories of the local traders across North and South Main Street. The results of these workshops will be shown as part of Quarter Block Party at the weekend.

Her residency at TDC will end this Friday with a public screening of ‘Silk Road’, a documentary film about four migrant businesses of Leith Walk in Edinburgh, Uk. The film reflects upon transculturation phenomena taking place in contemporary Europe, with a special focus on material culture. This work was borne out of a previous project in 2014, to which ‘Shop Around the Corner’ offers a continuation.

The screening will be followed by a short Q&A and discussion of the process involved in Daria’s work. We look forward to seeing you there!
