We run fortnightly sessions in Glasgow for adults with visual impairments, exploring art and heritage. We’ve created walking tours and a special event inspired by Glasgow’s old dancehalls, explored storytelling and visual art, and been on trips to many different museums and galleries in Glasgow. New members always welcome. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ve been running regular workshops with a group young carers in Glasgow since 2015. Professional artists from a range of disciplines have been working in collaboration with the young people to explore a range of artistic disciplines. So far the group has created a theatre production, a short film, an art installation, and an art exhibition. The group meets every week to have fun and explore new skills.
