'Made In Calton' represents a unique body of content generated from within the local community during PULSE.

In January 2014, Pidgin Perfect met with a group of elderly women from Calton Sheltered Housing to deliver a ‘reminesence workshop’, gathering personal stories and anecdotes about the history of the Barras Calton. These stories were then transformed into a short screenplay documenting a period of time between 1950-2014 by Glasgow based playwright Samuel David Rowe. Pidgin Perfect then worked with a group of four young girls from Peek Projects to turn the screenplay into a stop motion animation and in this process making stage sets, props, working on character animations and undertaking performance and audio recordings with the participants from Peek Projects. Made In Calton is a glimpse into the history of the Barras Calton and created using an intergenerational creative engagement method.
