In Residence



‘In Residence’ is a multi-disciplinary exhibition and symposium across three venues in Glasgow. Simultaneously an act of self care and an act of defiance, we are creating space for vital conversations while challenging the lack of visibility for artists and students of colour within this city. In Residence is the place for us to tell our stories; to form solidarities; it is by us and for us. 

Glasgow School of Art People of Colour Society was founded after students of colour voiced their dissatisfaction with the white, Eurocentric hegemony that the institution operates under. We have two main aims: to create space for students of colour during their time at the Glasgow School of Art and to create long term structural change.


Opening Party (at The Pipe Factory): 16th March 18:00-23:00
