Red Road Day at Peoples Palace

Come along to the People’s Palace on Sunday 26th February and help us explore Red Road’s history. There will be three different projects to get involved with, plus the chance to relax and chat over a cuppa.

The three projects are:

Street Level Photoworks: Portrait Archive and Blow-down project – an on-going visual history project with current and ex-residents which will document people’s reactions to the first demolition. Get your portrait taken at the Red Road photo booth!

Glasgow Museums: Museum staff want to add objects from Red Road to the museum collections and develop a display about the history of the flats to go in the People’s Palace. What do you think should be in the display? Come and share your ideas.

422:tv: The film crew want to interview residents (past and present) of the Red Road flats and include their stories in a film about the flats. Glasgow Housing Association will show the finished film to tenants who are going through the demolition process in other parts of Glasgow. If you would like to be interviewed, please contact Isobel McDonald to arrange a suitable time. The interview will probably last around 30 minutes.

The Street Level Photoworks and Glasgow Museums activities are drop-in events in the Winter Gardens, so just come along at any time between 11 am and 4 pm for these activities.

We would love to see your old photos as well – so do bring along anything you would like to show us.

We will provide refreshments.

If you will not be able to come along, but would like to get involved in any of these activities, please let us know what you are interested in, and we will be in touch.
