The opening event will include performances by:
- Peilin Shi: 'Peilin Shi (she/her), Hakka, is a Glasgow-based storyteller and researcher. With a passion for exploring the dynamics of social structure within urban context, voicing up for underrepresented communities, and championing human connections, Peilin’s artist focus weaves images, objects, texts to create thought-provoking and emotionally resonant works to encourage community engagement and cross-cultural communication'
- Lola Aluko: 'Lola is an actor, singer & occasional songwriter. Her music tends to take influence from r&b, neo-soul and bedroom pop. Currently working on different song ideas, Lola wants to build her sound more and then release music along the way. As well as making her own songs, she also enjoys taking existing songs and adding her own flare to them to give them a new feel or to explore layering and harmonies.'
- Ella Mayne: 'Ella (she/her) is a poet and writer who is interesting in exploring everyday experiences and emotions, starting from a place of the mundane and everyday she looks to unpick and uncover the latent meaning. Her work is often related to and unintentionally returns to the theme of belonging; what it means to belong? How and where we feel at home? How we (de)construct a sense of belonging and home? Investigating both the physical and mental manifestations of belonging, and the way this intersects with other themes of sexuality, mental health, and relationships.'
- Grayling: 'Grayling is the artist project of Glasgow based singer-songwriter Emma Murdoch, inspired by folk music of the 60's and indie femme artists of the moment such as Courtney Marie Andrews, Madison Cunningham and Faye Webster. Grayling pours emotive imagery into her lyrics which dance in partnership with her dulcet tones and wistful guitar melodies. She worked closely with producer Luke Palmer on her debut EP - 'Greenhouse' which was released last year on the 3rd of August. The first single from the EP - 'River Song' gained Track of the Week on BBC Radio Scotland, as well as receiving plays on BBC Introducing and remains on Spotify editorial playlists - 'Scotify' and 'Fresh Finds UK & Ireland'. Receiving a publishing deal with Wild Cove Recordings, Grayling has just recorded EP 2 with her band and continues to gig in and around Glasgow.'
- Mokusla: 'Mokusla, Born 1993, Donegal, Ireland, is the musical alter ego of the Irish visual artist Lou Rowland. A name inspired by the Irish Gaelic ‘Mo Chuisle’ meaning my pulse, my darling. The Glasgow-based queer artist writes, produces & sings, inviting you into her ethereal and haunting world. mokusla’s music invokes a dream-like feeling, blending dream-pop, folk and electronic elements. Her practice is vast and multi-disciplined across visual, audio & written work. Lou is also illustrator & printmaker running the Risograph print studio Wild Press. She divides her time between visual art and music often blending practices. Since the release of mokusla's debut EP 'you don't know what you're missing' in October 2022, her songs have been featured on BBC Introducing Scotland, BBC Radio Foyle, local radio stations & Nialler9's Best New Irish Music playlist. Upon playing in Old Hairdressers, with Sofar Sounds, Creative Mornings and having recently supported Ripley’s sold out Glasgow show in May 2023, mokusla’s performance practice continues to evolve. 'It's captivating, dream-like and completely transported me into a whole different world" - Phoebe Inglis-Holmes, BBC Introducing'
