Thursday 19th November 2020 | 6pm GMT | via Zoom
This online event is free and open to anyone interested in learning more about community activism and saving vacant historic buildings.
Govanhill Baths is a Category B-Listed Edwardian baths which was added to the Buildings at Risk Register in 2001. Since then, a combination of grassroots activism and community campaigning has worked to save the building and reopen the Baths as a wellbeing centre which contributes to the wider social, cultural and built regeneration of the local area.
In this online event David Cook, Project Director for Govanhill Baths Building Preservation Trust, and Fatima Uygun, Manager of the Govanhill Baths Community Trust, will discuss the process of restoring the building, fundraising, working with stakeholders and engaging with the local community. There will also be a Q&A at the end to ask David and Fatima about lessons they’ve learnt along the way, as well as grant funding opportunities from GCHT with Taylor Cross-Whiter, GCHT’s Development Officer.
This event is part of GCHT’s Historic Built Investment Forum, a series of events focused on issues currently facing Glasgow’s built heritage and how the historic environment can act as a driver for sustainable development.
