Scotland + Venice: Dispatch 1 of 12
Introduction: Morag Bain
The Happenstance was a three-phased project that took place in Scotland, Venice and Scotland. This is the first in a series of twelve publications or ‘dispatches’, exploring the themes of, and learning from the project.
Dispatch one begins with the back story of Scotland + Venice since 2004. It then introduces the work of the artists and architects before summarising the three phases:
Phase 1 The Happenstance with young people in Scotland
Phase 2 The Happenstance in Venice
Phase 3 The Happenstance return to Scotland
Through the twelve dispatches the story unfolds… the reasons, inspirations, people, places, connections, legacy…
