‘Whereabouts’ features new music, dance and poetry from Paragon’s Horizons artists. Inspired by the ethos of the Glasgow Open House Arts Festival, the pieces have all been created in response to the artists’ favourite places around Glasgow and beyond. Paragon’s musicians and dancers have taken to the streets, back gardens, castles and corner shops to create new works which explore their surroundings.
The online youtube event will feature performances from artists in undisclosed locations. Audiences are invited to watch along on the night, join the live chat, and make their best guess - ‘whereabouts are they?’
The works will also be shared as outdoor projections on Scott Street (at the side of the empty O2 building), and at Platform Theatre on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Onlookers can join the conversation on Paragon’s social media channels and enter the competition for a chance to win the opportunity to create their own site-specific art work, supported by Paragon's professional artists.
Paragon is an arts company whose mission is to create inclusion and equality through music and the arts. Horizons is an artist development programme that supports emerging artists to pursue their creative aspirations.
One emerging artist describes Horizons as ‘an amazing programme where you can write whatever you want and make a good song out of it, get a chance to perform your creations to an audience, record your songs, build confidence, bring anything to the table, play with others, compose in a group. It's anything you want to do!’
Throughout the last year our Horizons artists have found new ways to create, perform, play and dance together online. They have created new works reflecting their varied experiences of lockdown, exploring themes of hope, home, nature, and friendship. The artists are greatly looking forward to sharing their work with audiences online and in person.

Accessibility is a key part of our planning at every stage of the process, including learning from past events and feedback we have gathered from our artists and audiences.
