Two Permanent Works in the new Baths Building

Govanhill Baths is excited to announce two public art commissions for the building reopening as a Wellbeing Centre in 2023. We are seeking two Glasgow-based artists and keen to receive applications from people who self-identify as being from groups that are underrepresented in the arts. The successful candidates will be able to demonstrate their commitment to the grassroots activism represented by the work of the Govanhill Baths and to socially engaged arts practice.

1. Timeline Mural

The Trust is seeking an artwork that captures the full, varied, and exciting history of Govanhill Baths and the wider community it serves. That history extends from the municipalisation of Glasgow in the earlier 20th century, to the recent years of activism and community empowerment.
The Timeline Mural will be on wall that extends from the east side of the building that is the boundary of the Peace Garden. Although fixed to the wall the mural does not have to be 2D. We will be interested to receive proposals that allow the mural to be received via multiple senses.

2. Glass Balustrade and Screen

The Trust is seeking engaging artwork for a glass balustrade and screen, prominently located in the foyer, at the main entrance and exit of the building. The artwork will reflect the history of the Baths since the occupation of the building in 2001, the depth of engagement with the community and the grassroots activism at the core of the culture of the organisation.

Each commission has a budget of £7500, includes fee and production, to be managed by the artist and Arts Manager.

Govanhill Baths Community Trust are looking for new Board members and that could be you!

Govanhill Baths Community Trust has reached a very exciting time in its 20 year campaign to open the Baths as a wellbeing centre for the community of Govanhill. We are now looking for committed individuals to join our Board for the next part of the amazing journey of opening the Baths after over 20 years of campaigning and fundraising.

We have been awarded significant funding to help make this happen and we want to do the best we can for the community. The refurbishment will bring the Ladies’ pool, Learners’ pool, Turkish Suite and Sauna into service as well as providing a gym, community kitchen/cafe and multi-purpose community spaces. With the refurbishment of the building underway, we are looking forward to opening the Baths and how we make that a success.
Throughout the refurbishment, Govanhill Baths continues to develop a diverse programme of arts and wellbeing activities in the community, developing an outreach programme to keep people informed about the redevelopment and doing the groundwork to put systems and procedures in place for when the building reopens. Govanhill Baths now has a base in the Deep End in Nithsdale Street, where many of our activities take place, as well as small offices in Calder Street and Alison Street.

What skills, experience and expertise are we looking for?

To support our growth and development, we want to bring additional expertise to the Board and are looking for people with experience in operations including facilities management, health and safety and IT. We also need skills in fundraising, charity law and marketing and we always value local knowledge of our community.

What do we expect of board members?

Our Board members are committed to helping the Trust re-open the Baths as a Wellbeing Centre and contribute to the social, cultural and built regeneration of Govanhill as a community on the Southside of Glasgow.
We meet the first Tuesday of the month and expect regular attendance at meetings alongside reading reports, draft policies and proposals in advance of meetings. We have development days at least twice a year for more in depth strategic development.

What will I get out of it?

You will learn all about our different projects and how they work, get in depth access to the construction project, input into what the building is going to feel like and how it will operate. There will be opportunities for training and to represent the organisation at events. You will get priority access to some of our activities, copies of our publications and meet new people as we are a friendly and welcoming organisation.

What are the requirements?

Board members are required to live within a mile of Govanhill Baths, which extends to Pollokshields, Mount Florida and Shawlands. Applicants from further afield can be considered if they have particular skills we need.
We support and encourage diversity on the Board and especially welcome applications from the many community groups and individuals within the Govanhill area who have helped to shape Govanhill Baths Community Trust activities up to now.

How do I apply?

If you are interested in becoming a Board member and have some of the skills we are looking for, simply complete the application form (link below) and return to volunteer@govanhillbaths.com. We encourage applications from all who believe they can contribute effectively regardless of age, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, belief or race.

Applications to be a Board member must be received by 5:30pm on Monday 28th February 2022. Interviews will take place during March with appointments to the Board at the beginning of April.

If you want to know more before applying

If you are interested and want to learn more, we plan to hold an online information session on the Tuesday 8th February at 7pm, or you can join us in person on Tuesday 22nd February at 7pm in the Deep End, 21 Nithsdale Street, to hear more about what the Board does and what might be expected in the role as a Board member. If you would like to join either session please email info@govanhillbaths.com to register.

If you can’t make either of these sessions you can contact Alex Wilde, the Board Chair at alex@govanhillbaths.com with your questions.
