All Sided Games celebrated the Queen's Baton Relay visiting Meadowbank Sports Centre on Saturday 14 June 2014. An opportunity to view Jacob Dahlgren's No Conflict, No Irony (I love the whole world), a 100-metre banner made in collaboration with families from across Edinburgh at Meadowbank in October 2013, alongside Mitch Miller's two large scale, highly annotated, drawings called 'dialectograms', of Piershill Community Flat and Meadowbank.
All Sided Games set out to find new ways to work with families in their locality, seeking out areas of mutual interest by thinking and acting through the production and presentation of art. Six commissions by Jacob Dahlgren, Mitch Miller, Cristina Lucas, Nils Norman and Assemble, Florrie James and Dennis McNulty brought artists, individuals and groups together in and around venues built or used for the Edinburgh 1970 and 1986 Commonwealth Games and the Glasgow 2014 Games. The project also explored and expanded on ideas of the local through How Near is Here? a symposium and intensive programme.
