Instameets Edinburgh & Glasgow Dates: 21 & 22 March 2015 The weekend of 21/22 March is @Instagram’s WorldWide Instameet weekend for #WWIM11 so @igersedinburgh and @igersscotland have teamed up to bring you two pretty exciting events over the weekend, in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. On 21 March @igersedinburgh will be hosting an #empty meet at The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art One (Modern One) in Edinburgh for #WWIM11_Edinburgh. This will take place on the Saturday evening between 6-8pm and we will have full access to the gallery spaces after closing time with a guided tour of the Lichtenstein exhibition by the curators. Places for this will be limited on a first come first served basis, so make sure you save the date and we will provide details for how you can sign up for a place nearer the time. Given the location of Modern One we will likely arrange a walk along the Water of Leith before the event and drinks/dinner somewhere close by afterwards – so there will be plenty of options for people to meet up on the day. On 22 March @igersscotland will be touring Glasgow on the #WWIM11_Glasgow meet! Starting at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery at 11am and making our way to where the river Kelvin meets the river Clyde to spend some time at the Riverside Museum from there it’s a walk along the Clyde stopping at some of the iconic Glasgow Landmarks ending up in the city centre. A trip up the Lighthouse for the spectacular view, along to GoMA to visit the Duke from there it’s through the Merchant City to The Necropolis where we will finish up with some food/drink at Drygate Brewery. People are more than welcome to join us at any point along the route and we will provide more details soon. We think this will be an excellent weekend of events and photo opportunities so we really look forward to seeing you there! #WWIM11_Edinburgh #WWIM11_Glasgow #igersedinburgh #igersscotland #InstaMeet #ModernOne
The Edinburgh Reporter spoke to Jemma who is one of the Instagram fanatics behind the #Empty Instameet at the Modern Art Gallery tomorrow evening. She is clearly excited about the prospect!
We hope to bring you some of the lovely photos they expect to take at the beginning of next week.
