This week has been busy with workshops at Glasgow Women’s Centre and a zoom chat with Maryhill Together, as well as conversations about street songs, puffers and buddhism.
The art projects for the bridge are all intended to reflect and involve the local community – it’s great to hear from local people what they value about the canal and the area, and what they’d like to see included in the artworks and the River of Names.
We’ve heard lots about how local people use the canal, the memories of playing and swimming in the canal, and also about people’s concerns and hopes for the future of the canal and the whole surrounding area.
Do follow ‘Maryhill Together’ on facebook for updates on the artworks’ progress and ways to get involved.

We’ll be hosting another zoom chat in January – meanwhile please feel free to get in touch to suggest names, ask questions, download resources and activities here or just for a chat.
