Current Displays


Taking place at Kelvin Hall from Spring 2017:

Dance Hall Memories
This community display was co-curated in partnership with Glasgow Museums, Glasgow life and a group of senior citizens from the Peterson Park Sequence Dance Club in the North West of Glasgow. The museum and community objects were selected by listening to recordings of shared memories of going to the dancing. 

The display was launched at a Tea Dance with a jazz band in Netherton Community Centre. A second Tea Dance will be held in Kelvin Hall to celebrate this display, as part of Festival of Museums.
