Tales Fae the East

Tim Morozzo and myself were artists in residence for Glasgow Life in Ward 22 of the city, covering Dennistoun, Sighthill and Haghill in phase 2 and 3 of the city’s AIR project.

We created a podcast and photography project called Tales Fae the East which talked to the people of the East End about their lives and much, much more. 

One of the themes that emerged throughout the project was the importance of sustainable housing.  This lead to a conversation between the noted academic Seán Damer and Irene McInnes, founding member of Reidvale Housing Association.

There are 19 episodes in total, with the final episode focusing on the role of Gaelic in the city, as part of the GUIR! project from Glasgow Life.    

We created a trail through the East End of the city as part of the project and an exhibition of the photos that Tim took can still be seen at Dennistoun Library.
