Govanhill “Life In Lockdown” Photo Documentary Exhibition
Govanhill Roma Youth Project and Govanhill Baths Youth Club
Walk round the streets of Govanhill and watch out for our banners and bunting created from collages of all the amazing photos that young people and other residents in Govanhill have been taking on their phones during Lockdown.
Inspired by an idea from young people at Govanhill Roma Youth Project, they worked virtually in partnership with young people from Govanhill Baths Youth Club to select from the 247 photos sent in over a four week period to display weekly on various Facebook forums.
People were invited to send us three photos of the view from their window, and something that was helping them get through lockdown in their home. What has resulted is a historic documentary of what helped people in Govanhill survive the 2020 COVID-19 Lockdown.
The photos will also be available during the festival to view on the Govanhill Roma Youth Project and the Creative Govanhill Facebook pages.
