Home where home is not: Creative Workshops

Saturday 01 December 2018 | 2pm – 4pm  | Glasgow Women’s Library | Free

Maybe you have lived in Glasgow all of your life? Perhaps you have moved here from some other place in Scotland or the UK? Perhaps your parents came here for work or safety? Or maybe, like the artists, you came here from another country and have made Glasgow your home?

Artists Sogol Mabadi (Tehran, 1985) and Birthe Jorgensen (Copenhagen, 1975) are looking for a small group of women to explore what it means to feel at ‘home’ as women today. This series of creative workshops will be led by Sogol and Birthe, in the lead up to their exhibition project, Home where home is not, in summer 2019.

Regardless of where we are from, why you came and how we got here, most of us connect the feeling of ‘home’ with more than one time and place.

These workshops will share and hear women’s experiences, knowledge and expertise in terms of making and keeping a ‘home’ through conversation, audio recording and model making.

Travel and crèche can be provided. If this is helpful please email katie.reid@womenslibrary.org.uk or call Katie at the library on 0141 550 2267.

These workshops and the forthcoming exhibition are in partnership with Platform.




These workshops are for women only* and are free to attend. Please book here or you can call on 0141 550 2267. If you have booked a place and are no longer able to attend please let them know so that they can make your place available to someone else.

*All women-only events are inclusive of Trans and Intersex women, as well as non-binary and gender fluid people who identify in a significant way as woman or female.
