Making Space For Life

BY JULIE FREW
@ VOL 31 ON JUN 14, 2017

In this talk, Julie Frew shares her journey of making space for a new life. As a paediatric therapist she thought she'd handle it well, but as it turned out she struggled with PPD, triggers from traumas in her childhood and massive shifts in her social life.

Jangling Space

BY BRIAN MORGAN
@ VOL 31 ON APR 20, 2017

Jangling Space – a space where community meet, talk, imagine, share and DO. The DOING is important – we make tangible products that have meaning. We do it ‘out in the open’ so that people’s curiosity is aroused. These products – made from glass and ceramics – link back to an older Glasgow. We can still see remnants of that time with us today, in stained glass and wally tiles. We seek to find that beauty again. Our products, each and every one, contain a physical aspect of Glasgow. Each product has a story – and so do its makers. We attempt to help people feel like they belong – Jangling Space is a cooperative – and therefore it follows values and principles that cherish learning, cooperation, participation, democracy.
