Glasgow Women's Library Talk

Saturday 12 October 2019

10.30 - 12.00
Glasgow Women’s Library
23 Landressy Street, Glasgow, G40 1BP

Glasgow Women’s Library (GWL) has been providing information, resources and services since 1991. It developed from a broad-based arts organisation called Women in Profile, which was set up in 1987 with the aim of ensuring the representation of women’s culture during Glasgow’s year as the European City of Culture in 1990.

Sue John will talk about the growth of the library since 1991, from an unfunded grassroots group totally reliant on volunteers, into the internationally renowned museum, library and archive it is today; now employing 22 paid staff and supporting 100 volunteers each year.  She will look at how GWL’s core values have been vital in creating a museum that is grounded in social justice and equalities, and how GWL’s work is impacting more broadly within the heritage and cultural sectors.

Sue John is one of the Senior Managers of Glasgow Women’s Library, the only Accredited Museum dedicated to women’s history in the UK, a recognised collection of national significance and a multi award-winning, unique organisation. She project managed GWL’s recent £1.8 million four-phase capital renovation programme and leads the organisation in strategic planning, playing a key role in championing the organisation locally, nationally and internationally.

The cost of this event is £12 for FoGSA members and £15 for non-members.
