Tune in for our rebooted Instagram Live series!

Developed in partnership with We Are Here Scotland and New Architecture Writers, join us to explore the work of contemporary designers and creatives from diasporic communities across Scotland.

Each month we will bring you a new guest, selected by We Are Here Scotland, paired with a host from New Architecture Writers. Together, they will explore creative practice and career journeys – amplifying and celebrating diverse identities, cultures, and heritages across the creative industries.

This month, tune in to Ewa Effiom interviewing Leo Robinson.

Ewa Effiom is a Belgo-Nigerian architect and writer. He was a member of the Architecture Foundation’s New Architecture Writers’ and has been published widely in architectural media. He came second place in the Tallinn Architecture Biennale’s 2021 Curatorial Competition. His film Eagle Mansions was screened at Melbourne Design Week and was awarded the 2022 How To Residency at the CCA. Check out Ewa’s website to find out more.

Leo Robinson is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. His work is concerned with the creation of new rituals, symbolic systems and quasi-religious practices and images. His first solo exhibition, Theories for Cosmic Joy (2019), was shown at Tiwani Contemporary, and recent group exhibitions include: To The Edge of Time (2021) at KU Leuven, Leuven; Antechamber (2021) at Quench, Margate; and tender spots in hard code... (2021), Arbyte, London. Leo is currently preparing for his first institutional solo exhibition, which opens in December 2022. Follow Leo on Instagram and check out his website.
