Streetland is finally upon us (tomorrow!), and I’ve been out this week installing the artwork on pavements around Govanhill. Being weather dependent, it’s been a nail-biting few days: never have I checked the weather report more often, waiting for windows of dry weather before and after installing the chalk stencils.…Continue

A little bit about what this year's Streetland artist in residence Geraldine Greene has been getting up to:
Wandering around the streets of Govanhill I am suddenly aware of how much I have missed the area. Brought up nearby in the southside of Glasgow, and having lived in Govanhill for a number of years until fairly recently, I am very familiar with the area and have a strong connection with people and places here. However,…Continue

Can you help to deliver this years festival?
Streetland is reliant on volunteers to run and manage each years festival and we need a team of people on the day to make it all run smoothly.
Can you direct people, assist groups with the workshops or performances, set up equipment, hand out programmes, administer first aid, manage crowds?

Another good turnout this week, with several new faces adding to the numbers. A few who were there last week had warned they might be unable to make it this time, but we hope we'll see them all again next week.
Visiting us this week were Kumkum Nayyar and some members of her Slovak girls group, who also meet at the Govanhill Neighbourhood Centre. They sang some Slovak songs for us as well as joining in the songs were learning: a Hebrew round, "Zum gali gali"; the Congolese rowing song…Continue

Our first rehearsal was on Thursday, and after what feels like months of planning and preparing, we're underway!

All the songs are taught by ear, and at their simplest they are easy songs, but allowing the possibility of…Continue

On Saturday we set out to locate and find out information about food in Govanhill. We had some great conversations, meeting people who had been selling food in the area for two weeks to sixty two years! Gregs to my surprise had been there for 35 years. It was a great excuse to experiences places I had never been into since I moved here five years ago. I picked up some some Borcht pot noodle in the Polish Deli, met Graeme and Graeme who run the Meet n Eat cafe and cater for every taste and…Continue
