Test Unit 2017. Occupying the Post-Industrial City
Civic House & Phoenix Nursery

How do we create change in cites? According to Test Unit’s attitude, change comes from activism in public space – in doing, not just talking. Their actions, which started in 2016 in Bairds Brae in North Glasgow, have been continued this year with the “occupation” of Civic House; Space currently being developed to explore alternative approaches to city development.

The intense summer school week allowed five groups to test context-specific actions with the aim to start a process of site activation in a city with multiple vacant buildings as a result of industrial decline.
