About this event

What now for Govanhill Baths? Govanhill Baths Community Trust 99 Calder Street, G42 7RA Glasgow, United Kingdom Closed for more than 15 years, the Baths has had a renewed life as a vibrant and well-used arts, culture, and wellbeing venue for Govanhill and the wider Southside. After all those years of campaigning, the money has finally been secured to refurbish and reopen the facility as the Bath house it once was. With the old life as swimming facility and new life as creative hub colliding, what will the Baths look like at reopening in 2018? The clock is now ticking until closure changes the Baths forever. Join us for this panel event to discuss the new era of Govanhill Baths, asking difficult questions about the arts, wellbeing, and community empowerment in working class communities such as Govanhill. Panellists: Lesley Riddoch, award-winning journalist Aamer Anwar, leading human rights lawyer Loki, hip hop artist and writer Nicola Fisher, Save Our Pool campaigner and Vice President of EIS speaking in a personal capacity Chaired by poet Jim Monaghan
