November - December 2009
Facilitated by Square Mile residency programme, Sreejata Roy and Mrityunjay Chatterjee undertook a residency with Collective for six weeks from the beginning of November to the middle of December. During this time they undertook a period of research and exploration of the city centre square mile. Sreejata and Mrityunjay became interested in the many named markets around the locality and were keen to gather information on how these spaces had evolved over the years and if they still were used as areas of public exchange.
Working closely with Nelson Hall Community Centre heritage group they delivered narrative and reminiscent workshops recording and gathering stories from members which related to these spaces. They also held a weekly stall at the Saturday Farmer’s market and spent time with both shoppers and traders as well as setting up regular meetings with businesses in the Grassmarket.
