Water Path

For Glasgow Open House Festival 2017 (in collaboration with Fronde)

A participatory and performative walk exploring Glasgow's canal system for Glasgow Open House Festival 2017 (in collaboration with Fronde). Exploring, storytelling and discussing the similarities between Glasgow (Scotland) & Venice (Italy). Glasgow’s canal runs alongside Murano Street. Which was historically the site of glass factories, boat yards, and was the centre of industry in the city, but now it is considered a dangerous, and neglected part of the city. Water-Path explored the ways in which Glasgow's past, it's recent history and it's reputation has defined areas such as Maryhill, what used to be known as Glasgow's 'Little Venice'.
