A public call for contributions.
In the 30th year of both the Open Museum and Glasgow being the European City of Culture, we are inviting community groups and individuals to submit photographs to create a contemporary portrait of the city by those that live in it. This visual story of the city will capture people, places and experiences from a broad range of people behind the lens.
The Open Museum is Glasgow Museums’ outreach team. We take objects from the museum collections out to communities across the city, so that they can be enjoyed by everyone. In particular, we work with communities who may find it difficult to visit our museum venues.
These images will be displayed in our upcoming exhibition Coming into view: Photographing Glasgow, opening at Kelvingrove on June 27, 2020.
From March 11th – 18th 2020 we are inviting individuals to submit their recent 2020 photos of Glasgow, a title, how they want their name to appear in the exhibit and a short descriptor about how the image relates to what Glasgow means to them. As many images as possible will be displayed in the exhibition space using a combination of projection(s) and printed photos but in case of contributions exceeding our capacity - priority will be given to photos that are received first. The team will notify through social media, the participants whose photos are being displayed by April 10th 2020.
How To Take Part
Submit your recent photos of Glasgow with a title, short descriptor about what Glasgow means to you and how you would like your name to appear with your photo. Submit your contribution via social media channels by direct messaging The Open Museum on Facebook by March 18th 2020.
