Home where home is not | Creative Workshops

10 Nov 2018 → 8 Dec 2018


Artists Sogol Mabadi (Tehran, 1985) and Birthe Jorgensen (Copenhagen, 1975) are looking for a small group of women to explore what it means to feel at ‘home’ as women today. This series of creative workshops will be led by Sogol and Birthe, in the lead up to their exhibition project, Home where home is not, in summer 2019.

· Maybe you have lived in Glasgow all of your life?

· Perhaps you have moved here from another part of the city or another part of Scotland or England, Ireland or Wales?

· Perhaps your parents came here for work or safety?

· Or maybe, like the artists, you have come here from another country and have made Glasgow your home?

Regardless of where we are from, why we came and how we got here, most of us connect the feeling of ‘home’ with more than one time and place. Exploring what ‘home’ means to us today could bring about memories from your childhood, the warmth of your parent’s or grandparent’s home, memories of a particular neighbourhood or community that brings that special feeling of belonging, even if you no longer are part of it. It might also make you think of a place in the future that you dream of, a patchwork of memories, places, hopes and dreams.


Sogol and Birthe will lead 5 creative workshops to share and gather women’s experiences, knowledge and expertise in terms of making and keeping a ‘home’. The workshops will involve having conversations, creating recordings and model making in a friendly and informal environment.

FREE to take part and all materials are provided.

FREE breakfast will be provided

TRAVEL – we can assist with transport to and from Platform – let us know if we can help

CRECHE – we are able to provide a free crèche.

These workshops and the forthcoming exhibition are in partnership with Glasgow Women’s Library.
