Hinterland: a world premiere event launching Scotland’s Festival of Architecture in March 2016

In March 2016, Hinterland will mark the official launch of Scotland’s Festival of Architecture with a night-time public art event at St Peter’s seminary, presenting a key highlight of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design.  Almost 50 years to the day since the seminary opened, Glasgow based public art charity NVA present Hinterland, a world premiere and the inaugural event in the ambitious permanent scheme to reclaim the future of the world-renowned St Peter’s seminary, near Helensburgh, Argyll & Bute.

At night, audiences will walk through the semi-ancient woodland to discover the ruined seminary buildings, re-animated with monochromatic light installations and a specially commissioned choral work by composer Rory Boyle performed by St Salvator’s Chapel Choir from the University of St Andrews.

Hinterland opens on 18 March 2016 and runs to 27 March 2016.
