What does our city’s landscape say about its people? Are the women who lived here, worked here and shaped our city represented at all in our public spaces?
From April-June 2017 The Women’s Creative Company worked with Terra Incognita on their As I See It Project to create a statue that represented the hidden histories and untold stories of Glasgow women.
The statue created will be a point of focus in Hidden Footprints, a promenade performance through Merchant City inspired by the historical and contemporary voices of women in our city.
Combining historical fact with personal reflections, we follow in the footsteps of the women who went before us. Sharing little-known tales from the past alongside contemporary musings on the spaces and people of Merchant City, this is a thought-provoking exploration of what these streets mean to us and what they represented to the women before us.
