Scotland + Venice: Dispatch 12 of 12
The Ongoing Legacy: Morag Bain and Peter McCaughey
In this dispatch, Principal Design Officer, Architecture and Design Scotland, Morag Bain and anti-curator of The Happenstance, Peter McCaughey give a broad-brush stroke of some of the many legacy outcomes of The Happenstance. It looks at the direct results, including an exhibition tour, and also outlines some of the events, activities and invitations to present the project, that highlight how avidly others wish to learn from The Happenstance. Tools shared, friendships and connections made, and the leaving of the outdoor cinema equipment to the people of Venice, ensures The Happenstance legacy is ongoing as this is being written.
