In early 2017 we recruited Recollective, a group of three artists to deliver a 12-month artist residency in Falkirk town centre.

The artists Alison Irvine, Chris Leslie and Mitch Miller have engaging local people and groups to document the changes and improvements made to Falkirk Town Centre. Their work takes in landmark buildings such as Falkirk Steeple, shops and offices, and remembers buildings such as Aitken’s Brewery that has long gone.

Recollective have been collecting stories, joining heritage tours, sketching, photographing and filming for an exhibition and publication that will be launched in early 2018. This will stand as a major document of Falkirk’s urban heritage, past and present.

Recollective consists of a writer, a photographer/filmmaker and an illustrator. Using these three different art forms Recollective will document the regeneration and the social changes it brings about from an independent point of view.
