Glasgow’s newest triathlon club is starting up in the East End of the city. Based out of Dennistoun it will be looking to take advantage of some of the best facilities being developed for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, as well as the best natural surroundings money can buy!
Glasgow 2014 – your city, your Games, your opportunity to be involved.
It’s not just athletes at the heart of the Games. You could be too. Everyone in Glasgow is being encouraged to take part in the Games, and one great way to do so is to volunteer.
From the 30th of October to the 7th of December, illustrator Mitch Miller will be resident in Market Gallery on Duke Street. His task will be to create a large room-length ‘dialectogram’ of the stretch of Dennistoun’s main high street that lies between Bellgrove and Duke Street railway stations. Aided by a team of volunteers who will gather information and assist his research, he will work continuously on the drawing in an open studio format, where members of the public will be encouraged to drop by, share stories and if they so wish, contribute their own knowledge and experiences to the dialectogram.
But what exactly is a dialectogram?
Ramblers Scotland is launching new walk programmes in various Glasgow locations as part of the organisation’s aim to get more people in the city out walking.
