CLiC partnership activities return this Summer to round off the project

The CLiC partnership project will be reigniting its thinking sessions between July and November. 

Partners have been involved for the last couple of years, spending valuable time together exchanging ideas and experiences on ways of working with Collections both within and outwith their organisations. 

We will be engaging the participants to be involved in regular catch up sessions both in person and digitally.  

The programme of activities includes a visit to the newly refurbished Burrell Collection from the team at Glasgow Life, review and discussion around the Going Places report from Creative Scotland and Museums Galleries Scotland, and delivery of a useful toolkit. 

Artists Connect and Artists Activate: bold case studies highlight new approaches that place artists at the heart of museums and their collections

The Hunterian Art Gallery Curator, Dominic Paterson, invites us to consider Jimmy Robert’s Tobacco Flower as an artistic intervention in the Hunterian Collection, showing us that artists can generate new tools and approaches.
The Team at Glasgow Women’s Library explore how working with artists can allow hidden histories to surface through Ingrid Pollard’s recent residency and exhibition No Cover Up.
