Would you like to see an unused open space within your neighbourhood given a new lease of life?
A call is being put out to programmers, researchers, artists, educators, and thinkers within the Dennistoun community who are able to participate with the exciting new ‘Skill/Trade’ project based at Duke Street’s Market Gallery. Skill/Trade will have an emphasis on trading and exchange rather than monetary transactions.

Many of these sites may have plans for future development, however this can be anywhere from one to over ten years until development is scheduled to begin.
