Archive of campaign blog from 2011 which was run by Magic Torch @aulddunrod. This campaign is no longer active, but we do still occasionally share news relating to the Sugar Sheds. The campaign is not affiliated with any political party, or the Sugarsheds music website / twitter account, which exists to promote the Inverclyde music scene.
White Gold, an incredible large-scale performance, will transform the Sugar Sheds in Greenock this June as part of Culture 2014, the celebrations surrounding the Commonwealth Games. The project is led by arts organisation Iron Oxidein partnership with the Beacon Arts Centre. It's an original creation by Mark Murphy and includes Cuerda Produccionesfrom Argentina, All or Nothing Aerialand DJs/musicians Tigerstyle. Bringing personal stories to life through music, drama and breath-taking aerial performance, White Gold gives the community of Greenock top billing as the nation’s stars. The performance can only be realised with the public’s support and input and we are delighted to announce the following opportunities:
