The People's Bank of Govanhill

BY AILIE RUTHERFORD
@ VOL 31 ON APR 20, 2017

Ailie Rutherford’s collaborative practice is grounded in the places she works. Inviting people to become co-producers of works that activate local public space, she interrogates the way we form communities and connect to each other, working with people to exchange knowledge and collectively imagine alternatives to the way we live now. Her current work The People’s Bank of Govanhill evolved from a residency at Govanhill Baths, Glasgow to become a long term collaborative research project on community currency. In an area frequently described as deprived, the project takes Govanhill’s existing alternative economy as its starting point, considering the diversity and richness of the local community as a form of wealth.
