AS I SEE IT | dancehall experience

In the 1920s, Glasgow had more dancehalls than anywhere else in Britain. Terra Incognita’s Dancehall Experience brought the spirit of these dancehalls back to life with a special one off event. Featuring an exhibition, storytelling, dancing, cupcakes and more, the event was created from memories of older people across Glasgow including Glasgow As I See It, Castlemilk Seniors Centre, Bridgeton Community Learning Campus and Townhead Village Hall Lunch Club.
