Tinderbox Collective run a range of music and arts projects and workshops with young people.

Claire Morwood is a game designer and member of Biome Collective in Dundee.

The workshop is part of a project and upcoming exhibition called “Ruined” (12th June – 29th Aug 2021, Scottish National Portrait Gallery) which invites you to re-invent Scottish history by imaginatively ‘mashing-up’ paintings in the Scottish art collection. You will be in a time-machine of multiple video projections, in a set of ruins, where the shocking events and ghosts from Scotland’s past appear before your eyes!
