CREATe at the Barras: ESRC Festival of Social Science

By 7 November 2016No Comments

This weekend, CREATe staff will become market stallholders, as we bring our research to the Barras market in the east end of Glasgow. CREATe is taking part in in ‘The Barras Social’, a College initiative to celebrate the ESRC Festival of Social Science, bringing university research to a new environment. Reasearchers from across the College of Social Sciences will present their work on stalls across the famous Barrowlands Market, alongside the regular stallholders.

Using the ‘Digitising the Edwin Morgan Scrapbooks’ project as a way to explores issues of authorship and ownership of copyright, visitors will be able to make their own scrapbooks on an interactive board and to take away, creating their own unique works and re-using works made by others.

Join us at ‘The Barras Social’ for activities, exhibitions and films throughout the day, looking into some of the big questions about equality and change in our society. The event takes place on Saturday 12 November from 10am – 9pm, with the stalls running until 4pm.  Further information can be found here.
