Hidden Glasgow

Hidden Glasgow, 24–30 October 2011


With the architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Alex Greek Thomson, brutalists Gillespie Kidd & Coia, tenement housing, Glasgow is one of the finest European cities. Once the gateway to America, the shipping industry on which the city was built has all disappeared but in its shadow has grown the most dynamic and integrated creative scene. Contemporary art, literature and music are deeply enmeshed in the American grid laid deep into the topography.

We shall go in search of Glasgow’s hidden heart. Architects, historians, artists and friends will lead us on five personal walks through the great granite blocks covering the banks of the Clyde.
