2020 Visions Trongate 2020

2020 Visions – Trongate Buildings Lighting

2020 Visions reanimates disused spaces in the centre of Glasgow

Our high streets are changing. Office blocks are emptying. Our need for shared human experience remains the same.

2020 Visions asks what the future of our neighbourhoods will be and presents it as a series of scenes in nine sites around the Tron Theatre, Glasgow. Street level windows have been taken over with installations inspired by the stories and ideas of local people, who contributed to the project online and through social media by sharing their hopes and dreams for the future. Part promenade, part treasure hunt, part collective dream, 2020 Visions empowers us all to reflect and imagine a brighter future during the darkest week of the winter.

2020 Visions is a concept where anything is possible. The creative team transformed ideas submitted by the public into temporary reality, working with local businesses and community interest companies to transform the streetscape. A core feature of 2020 Visions is collaboration with emerging artists from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds.

Visual artists Sekai Machache, Samuel Temple, and Saoirse Anis joined with the 2020 Visions team of theatre technicians, lighting designers, and set designers in a creative mash-up which has produced curious and playful artworks in response to the question “What does our future hold?”. Visions have been reflective, resonant, thought provoking, and fun.

As the days get shorter and night comes earlier, 2020 Visions has populated empty spaces with light and re-animated the Trongate neighbourhood with hope.
