“When all seasons disappear and only one season remains, it's the season of death. That is the case in my country. The rain turned to pouring lead. Spring flowers turned into scattered corpses filling the earth. The songs of the summer birds became the cries of women and children. The autumn wind now is the voice of guns and planes. We live, suspended, in the biggest horror movie produced by human beings.”

Wednesday 18th June: 6pm : Future Memory In Red Road, documentary film screening, at CCA.

The aim of the project was to provide a series of creative experiences through which local people reflected on the massive changes happening in the area.
This project was a collaboration between Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow University, Exeter University and Glasgow Life. Project partners were Alive and Kicking, The Red Road Family Centre, GHA and Safedem.
Free. Everyone welcome.
