Like many other charities, the coronavirus outbreak is having a major impact on our activities, threatening our crucial work to protect, repair and celebrate Glasgow’s rich built heritage. As a result, we expect to lose an important part of our income this year.

We are therefore asking that if you are able to support our conservation and outreach work,
please consider adding a donation when you book your ticket

Monday 5th October 2020 | 6pm BST | via Zoom

Join us for the online launch of the TnmntTilesIRL exhibition. Zan Phee, the curator of this archive of historical tenement tiles, will be with us to chat about her project and answer your questions.

For over five years Zan has wandered all the corners of Glasgow and further afield with the aim of capturing images that show the beauty of tenement life for her online archive. Showcasing the amazing artistry of the tiled walls, to the imposing spiral staircases, to the painted glass murals found on doors and windows, the impressive archive has gained an army of loyal followers on Twitter and Instagram.

Glasgow City Heritage Trust was delighted to offer a Community Grant to support an ‘In Real Life’ exhibition of the TnmntTiles archive. Sadly, the Covid-19 pandemic has put a stop to our physical exhibitions for the time being, and so Zan has worked hard to reinvent the project as a virtual exhibition instead.

Free, booking required, donations welcome.
