Streetland was a festival of community and street based arts that happened in Govanhill in May 2010 as part of Glasgow International Art Festival. This would be a good chance to become more familiar with the particular structure of a community based arts agenda that seems to be running on the Southside around the Govanhill Baths and the Centre for Community Practice.
You can download the programme for the streetland festival from our resource library.
‘ Members of Streetland will host a talk on the community and place based creative project, Streetland, which ran a successful festival in the streets of Govanhill in May. Forging community links and future activities will be discussed, against the backdrop of the Glasgow DIY approach to public art, as Streetland lead you outside into the streets.
