Step To | Jacqueline Donachie, Becca Thomas, Nicola Walls, Moira Jeffrey
Thu 17 June, 2pm - 4pm online; 5:30pm-7:30pm on location
Online: STEP TO invites you to join an online discussion on issues of accessibility within our urban architecture. Glasgow, for example, is a city with numerous inaccessible heritage buildings, highlighted by Jacqueline Donachie’s new works at Govan Project Space and in the public work located in the now derelict Graving Docks nearby. In response, the online discussion asks: how can we make our cities more accessible for the people who actually live in them? Speakers include Becca Thomas, creative director and architect of New Practice, and Nicola Walls, head of arts and culture at Page Park Architects. The talk is chaired by Moira Jeffrey, director of Scottish Contemporary Art Network (SCAN).
On location: Following the online discussion there is an opportunity for a tour of the artworks with Jacqueline Donachie. Starting at Govan Graving Docks (Clydebrae Street) at 5:30pm, Jacqueline Donachie is discussing the development and realisation of the STEP casts sited there. From there, participants may walk over to the gallery at Govan Project Space to view the exhibition, with refreshments. The walk between venues is approximately 12 minutes on level pavement; transport can be provided where required.
