STORIES, PHOTOS, GRAPHIC ART FROM GLASGOW’S BARROWLAND BALLROOM

Through photography, text and graphic art, the award winning artists of Recollective (Alison Irvine, Chris Leslie, Mitch Miller) will engage with the untold stories of the Barrowland Ballroom. They will do so in close collaboration with the venue, the east end community that surrounds it, and a much wider community of gig-goers, dancers and musicians whose life stories are woven into the building. This website contains all the latest information / journals and information on the project and book.

 

Project supported by Creative Scotland, Festival 2018 and Glasgow City Heritage Trust. Book and logo designed by Graphical House.

YOUR STORY

This is a documentary project that uses photography, film, illustration and non-fiction to gather stories about the Barrowland. It’s not just about the bands and the glamour of being on stage. It’s about the fans, the staff, anyone from Glasgow and beyond who has a connection with the venue. Did you dance there as a youngster? Do you remember your first gig? Have you ever played there?
