Folk Carols in the Pub with Govanhill Voices
In some parts of the country at this time they still gather in pubs to sing local carols long forgotten or never known elsewhere. Some of them used to be sung in village churches in the days of the church bands, before organs and church choirs as we know them now, and they sound very different from today's carols.

Creative Thursday Interview: Jen Collins

Creative Thursday Gilly Roche
This week's Creative Thursday interview is with theatre producer Gilly Roche.
I moved to Battlefield in January but have lived in the Queen’s Park/Strathbungo area for the last five years. I work at the Southside Studios on Westmoreland Street in Govanhill.
SSH: What do you do?
My job is to create platforms where artists can share work, explore ideas, take risks and be bold. It’s also my job to support those artists all the way through that process – from the first idea to the final show and beyond!
SSH: What is your background?
SSH: Do you have any new work coming up?
The next one is on June 29th – more information at www.facebook.com/teameffortglasgow
It’s a brilliant set of rules to try to make work by, I think.
SSH: What is your favourite creative blog/ website or other source of inspiration?
I found that Robert Krulwich commencement address at www.brainpickings.org - a veritable treasure trove of interesting and inspiring bits and bobs.
SSH: Tell us your favourite place in the Southside?
SSH: Name another Southside creative whose work you admire?
Apart from the six, bold and brilliant Team Effort! artists, I’ve got to go for Caroline Newall. She’s Director of Artistic Development at the National Theatre of Scotland and she’s mentoring me throughout my work on Team Effort!. She’s an incredibly creative producer, she works tirelessly for the artists she supports and she can play Frisbee in six-inch high heels.
SSH: If money was no option what would you change about the Southside?
SSH: Tell us one other interesting fact about you?
My name (spelled “gili”) has an unfortunate meaning in Spanish. Google it.

Govanhill - A Place of Many Faces
Govanhill- A Place of Many Faces
A Photography and Film Exhibition by Donnie Maclean and Anna Paul - working with Community Renewal on the Govanhill People’s History Project.
The photographs are a visual document of the area with an emphasis on its positive aspects and the exhibition is an extension of our ongoing project based in Govanhill, 'The Govanhill People's History'. There will be portraits, landscapes, people and still lives. The primary photographer is Donnie Maclean. There will also be a film from myself, Anna Paul on display.I have attached some photographs to give an idea of what they the work will be like and a leaflet about the project. The event will be social and hopefully a chance too for people to get involved in our project if they are interested as we will have a camera and recorders on the night.
'Govanhill People's History' is run in partnership with the Scottish Oral History Centre and is funded by the Heritage Lottery fund and Glasgow City Council.
It is a social history project looking at the different experiences of the residents of Govanhill past and present, as well as a wider look at Glasgow. We want to celebrate the different cultures within the community and also create an exhibition with photographs, film footage and interviews which demonstrate this. We have been conducting interviews with people from Govanhill past and present. Some of our transcripts will be displayed on the opening night.
All welcome the Launch event from 5.00pm onwards on Thursday May 2nd

Creative Thursday: Kate Tough
KT: Few things are reliably, flawlessly perfect but many things have a streak of it if you catch them at the right moment, like Sunny Govan Radio (turn it up Govan!). Beautifully non-BBC, non-commercial, with a spectrum of voices and sounds. I prefer creativity I can’t predict (format is wearyingly dominant in cultural output). A recent, unexpected arts encounter was the rapper Ar Droops on theGlad stage. He takes Scottish rap in a new direction with prism-ic intelligence, terrific wit and a charming routine where he runs out of breath while reciting.
