New Shoots Old Roots at Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow

Street Level Photoworks, in collaboration with ACWA (African & Carribean Women’s Association), will celebrate the achievements of African & Carribean women in Scotland at an event on Saturday (10th October) as part of Luminate Festival.

A short multi-media work will be screened that combines interview extracts with archive and contemporary photographs from some of ACWA's members.  The project reflects on a significant part of Glasgow/ Scotland's history through sharing some of the experiences of these remarkable women.

With introductions from:

Harriette Campbell : Activist and ACWA Chair 2000-2015 

Iseult Timmermans : Street Level's Collaborations Coordinator 

Mukami McCrum, MBE : Peace and Equalities activist

Live music by Clare Robertson : Musician & Glasgow Life Arts Officer.

The project is respectfully dedicated to Edith Neheux, pictured above, who came to Glasgow in 1970 from Sierra Leone.  She worked as a nurse and health visitor in Glasgow 1973 – 2010 and was one of ACWA original members.  Edith passed away in 2014.

 

The event is free and all are welcome, and takes place at Street Level Photoworks, Trongate 103, Glasgow G1 5HD on 10 October 2015 between 2 and 5pm. Further details are available here.
