Glasgow Doors Open Day is a free festival taking place on the 15th and 16th September 2012 – the 23rd year that Glasgow has hosted the event. It provides a great chance for Glaswegians to become tourists in their own city for a day.
A call is being put out to programmers, researchers, artists, educators, and thinkers within the Dennistoun community who are able to participate with the exciting new ‘Skill/Trade’ project based at Duke Street’s Market Gallery. Skill/Trade will have an emphasis on trading and exchange rather than monetary transactions.
Market Gallery is hosting “a night of blood, sweat, tears, triumphs”.
The latest approved minutes, for the December 2011 meeting, have now been uploaded to the Minutes section of the site. and are available for public viewing. As ever, the minutes contain a police report, elected member reports, committee reports, DCC action plan updates, etc.
The Applications section has also been updated with the most recent planning application report – December 2011. This is a handy review of all recent applications relevant to the Dennistoun Community Council Area. Where applicable, brief summary comments are made. On occasion, DCC may submit or support a formal objection to an application.
On Tuesday 11th October local MSP Paul Martin presented the 2011 Dennistoun Treasure Hunt prizes of a £25 book token, sponsored by Community Council, to the two winning children from each Dennistoun primary school.
What was Dennistoun like? Where did you go to school? Where did you play? Who were your pals? Where did you meet? Where did you work? What were the shops like?
Opening nights, open days, music to open your mind… There’s something for all ages during an upcoming a busy weekend (and month!) of art and music in and adjacent to Dennistoun. Here’s a selection of what’s on:
