Wednesday 25th January | 7pm | via Zoom

This talk will look at how housing movements and tenant struggles have shaped, and been shaped by, Glasgow’s ever changing housing stock. Tenements, high rises and new builds have all called forth different tactics, strategies and demands as the city transformed, and we will trace a tradition of rent strikes, occupations and protest that continues up to today.
Joey is a writer and artist from Glasgow. He is co-founder of the Glasgow Housing Struggle Archive, a member of the National Committe of Living Rent –  Scotland’s tenants’ union. He is currently working on a number of projects with the CCA, Platform, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Edwin Morgan Trust and the Travelling Gallery.
