Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Mackintosh Building S28

Well there you go.

The CCA (Centre for Contemporary Arts) swings from ‘bust’ to ‘boom’.

Last time out, it was crying in its beer and warning everyone it might go under as it wasn’t able to open its doors, thanks to the quarantine thrown up after Mackintosh Building fire.

Now, it can afford to throw a free party for one and all to celebrate the lifting of the quarantine, and return to normal service.

I think somebody should subject the CCA Board to the same sort of scrutiny and negativity which has recently been aimed at the Glasgow School of Art Board – or have it add the words ‘tact and diplomacy‘ to its agenda.

(Oh well, there goes MY free invite.)

Now that I’ve burnt that bridge, I’ll add that this looks like a promotion for the first exhibition after the re-opening, and other events, so the party is really riding on the back of that, rather than being ‘stand alone’.

Fingers crossed they get everyone back, on the other hand, do they really need friends who deserted them in the time of need?

A massive party is set to take place next month to celebrate the reopening of Sauchiehall Street businesses following the devastating art school fire in June.

And next month, they will join forces to “support the revival” of the area at a huge extravaganza – with all Garnethill residents, members of the local community, long-standing CCA supporters and regular visitors invited to attend!

Francis Mckee, CCA Director, said: “This is a party for everyone. We want to celebrate the reopening of our building and bring together all the people who supported us during the summer months and all those who want to support the revival of Sauchiehall Street and the Garnethill area. It’s time to look forward and definitely time for a party.”

CCA and Saramago Café Bar will be open right through to 3am with sets from Cucina Povera, Poisonous Relationship, Kübler-Ross and Sarra Wild.

The evening begins with the opening of CCA’s new exhibition, A Weakness for Raisins: Films and Archive of Ester Krumbachová, and the Scottish Queer International Film Festival will also have events on throughout.

The party is free entry all night and takes place on Friday, December 7.
