Abstract

The interdisciplinary research and knowledge exchange initiative led by the University of the West of Scotland continues to explore artist-led regeneration of transitional urban waterfront spaces in Northern Europe. The
main case studies feature former shipyard communities in Govan (Scotland) and Gdansk (Poland), which are still in the process of moving from an industrial to a non-industrial domain.

Between 2012-2017, the initiative has put in place and developed an international network of stakeholders, members and collaborators which has enabled it to deliver exhibitions, artists interventions, conferences and
symposia on a local, national and international level. This work is underpinned by academic research programmes in Scotland and Poland with the participation of artists, architects and community groups. All the events, widely promoted across the communities concerned, have helped build partnerships between those involved: UWS and Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk; cultural institutions and museums (Riverside Museum, European Solidarity Centre, Wyspa Art Institute, Street Level Photoworks); politicians, SURF network; academics;
urban planners; social enterprises and cultural organisations (Arteria Association, Fablevision, GovanFair Association).
