Exploring Women’s Hidden History with Glasgow Women’s Library, Hillhead, Kirkintilloch
Join us for tea, coffee, biscuits and informal discussion on who are the local women of East Dunbartonshire that you most remember and why? Where did they live and what did they do? How are they remembered? From the well-known to unsung heroines, this friendly, social and informal event will include short talks, a fun women’s quiz, discussion and hands on activities to give you an introduction to Glasgow Women’s Library and some of the women’s heritage projects that are happening across Scotland, including the new interactive Women of Scotland website that maps monuments to women across Scotland. Come along, try our women’s history quiz and create your own local map of women whose stories deserve to be remembered. This Glasgow Women’s Library opportunity is part of East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust’s Trails and Tales programme which is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Creative Scotland. The 3 year programme will lead to the development of a series of new sculpture and arts heritage trails across the local authority.
