[Various dates during August]

Glasgow’s Wasps Studios continues its summer programme into August:

Its South Block building is the venue for Past Forward – Stories of Urban Scotland, an interactive digital journey through the history of Scotland’s towns and cities, allowing you to experience some of the nation’s secret urban spaces – a celebration of the work of Scotland’s Urban Past (SUP), which since 2014 has been helping people all over the country to explore the stories behind the urban places they love best. [Free admission, 2nd – 26th August]

At its Briggait building, Tools for Survival, an exhibition by Jenny Pope, Liz Douglas and Felicity Bristow shows new work investigating ‘tools for survival’ in extreme circumstances, with a specific focus on the urban environment of Glasgow in relation to green space, the ‘hurricane low Q’ in 1968 and the 2002 Glasgow flash floods. It previews Thursday 8th August, 6-8pm and continues 9th – 29th August.

And Wasps’ first Summer Artist and Makers Market will take place Saturday 31st August, 11am – 5pm in the Briggait Hall, with free admission to ceramics, jewellery, paintings, glass, textiles, illustration, prints, and much more, from over sixty talented stall holders.
