Let’s Talk Shop – Exhibition

Visit the Glasgow Lighthouse Thursday 12th December to 22nd January to see Govan’s own “Let’s Talk Shop” Exhibition.

During the Autumn Term 2013, Primary 7 pupils from schools across Central Govan participated in a series of creative learning workshops and field trips to learn about their local area and built environment. Focusing on the heart of Govan’s historic centre at Water Row and Govan Road, pupils from Pirie Park, Riverside, St.Constantine’s and St.Saviour’s Primary Schools explored the physical, social and cultural development of Govan in relation to its ‘high street’, shops and shopfront design.

You can see full details of the project and some of the fabulous shopfront designs produced by the school children at the Lighthouse. A local exhibition will also be held in the Portal Gallery space in the New Year – so watch this space for more details.

The “Let’s Talk Shop” project was designed and delivered by Geraldine Greene for Govan Cross Townscape Heritage Initiative. Funded by Glasgow City Council and Heritage Lottery Fund.
