What's on at Scotland Street School Museum

What's on at Scotland Street School Museum


From 12 July 2017 | During opening hours | All ages
Working in partnership with Colourful Heritage, GlaswegAsians traces the influence and heritage of South Asian Communities across Scotland and throughout Glasgow. 

The exhibition marks the start of a relationship between Glasgow Museums and Colourful Heritage, a community group based in Glasgow that has developed an online archive of material recording the migration of people from South Asia to Scotland.

The exhibition will run for an extended period at Scotland Street School Museum allowing Glasgow Museums to explore how people came to Glasgow and how the city grew and changed as a result. 

Among the exhibits are the copy of the Quran Mohammed Sarwar used as he was sworn in as the UK’s first Muslim and South Asian MP and the kilt and sherwani worn by Humza Yousaf MSP as he was sworn in at the Scottish Parliament in 2011. The exhibition explores entrepreneurship and working life, politics, war, family and social life and schools.

An activity and workshop programme will accompany the display - check out our What's On section to find out more about upcoming events.​
