We are organising our first annual Maryhill Eco-Fair on Saturday 17th March. We would love you to come along! The event is a project funded by the Scottish Government throughout the Aspiring Communities Fund (ACF), European Social Fund.
The DOT TO DOT ECO-FAIR MARYHILL is a social enterprising event aligned with the socio-economic sectors prioritised by EU’s economic strategy that connects creative industries, environment and ITC (social technologies).
The DOT TO DOT ECO-FAIR MARYHILL is a citizen touchpoint that connects eco-design, waste reuse and societal challenges throughout a network of creative people. It is a creative temporary marketplace open to gather and exhibit the co-creation made by local remakers, experimenters, ecologists, activists and green educators and learners.
The DOT TO DOT ECO-FAIR MARYHILL is also an innovative hub that promotes the culture of remaking, social innovation and and circular economy through the reuse, repurposing and reactivation from objects, food and furniture to buildings, site and digital platforms. It is an open lab to transform an abandoned brownfield site into a productive greenspace through the use of ecological design, experimental projects, DIY techniques, public artistry, pop-up architecture and reused materials.
The event programme offers a business description of all eco-fair participants providing links and event plan distributed in two zones –Dunard Yard and Eco-Fair Square- with several stalls. If you follow us in social media, portal or here, you can openly join all live workshops, demos, food and music, and the remake ceremony hosted by the DOT TO DOT Community Consortium.
