Beyond The Finish Line
The programme comes from Beyond The Finish Line in Glasgow’s east end as the city and the people of Scotland assess the impact of the Commonwealth Games and continue to look into how they can work together to make their communities better.
The Digital Commonwealth project travels across Scotland, from the Northern Isles and the far north of the mainland all the way to the gates of the Glasgow 2014 stadium itself, to help train people to tell their own stories about the Games, about the journey of the Queen’s Baton Relay and about their place in the Commonwealth.
Glasgow School of Art
When the devastating fire caused heart-breaking damage to the Glasgow School of Art earlier this year, students and staff were determined not just to try to salvage the building, but also to make sure that the annual final degree show went ahead.
This is a community space in one of Scotland’s most run-down area in the north of Glasgow. But by opening the space up to young people, such as cake maker Lewa Thomas, it has become a friendly refuge and hive of activity for people of all ages.
The Barrhead Water Works
This community project has seen local toddlers groups, school students, apprentices and elderly people, horticulture experts and the local authority in East Renfrewshire working together to convert a derelict former sewage works into a beautiful wild flower garden and community walkway.
A video artist takes inspiration from some of the country’s classical visual satirists, such as Hogarth, to create stunning – and slightly disturbing – films which tackle everything from national identity, via heraldry and sports clothing, to opera and fizzy drinks.
