Architecture in Conversation – Voices of Experience
Thursday 1st March 2018, 5:30pm to 7:30pm                      How are archives and collections discovered and how might they spark new written or spoken histories? What is the experience of using the Glasgow Women's Libray archive, encountering material in different forms: books, drawings, photographs, models, databases, audio recordings, conversations and events, blogs? How do you comfortably occupy an archive with different artefacts, technologies and people, and in different types of spaces? 

Using material gathered as part of the 'Voices of Experience' project,  participate in short workshops around the Glasgow Women’s Library spaces to explore these questions and to celebrate Finch & Fouracre's new architecture inspired sketchbook for the Library. The Voices of Experience team are delighted to welcome historian Diane Waters and conservation architect Fiona Sinclair to the event.  Book your place here!
