Speaking Volumes is a collaboration between Glasgow Women’s Library and My Bookcase to create a space where reflection on the influential role of women in art will be activated through the object of the book.

Visitors and participants at this year’s festival are invited to contribute their lists of recommended texts. The team at Glasgow Women’s Library will source these books, forming part of the collections on display at bespoke reading rooms created by artist and My Bookcase founder, Cristina Garriga. These collections will form an accessible post-festival legacy.

During the festival, Speaking Volumes is also hosting discussions between international and Glasgow-based creatives around the women, art and books that have influenced their lives and work.
