The Projects: Govan
Govan was once the centre of the world-renowned Clydeside shipbuilding industry. It was also home to some of Scotland’s most famous speakers, Mary Barbour and Jimmy Reid. Govan has a history of speaking up and speaking out about how the people of Govan want their world to be. We created a Govan-wide event in June, bringing voices from Govan together, both speaking and singing. Alongside this, the National Theatre of Scotland ran six months of free weekly acting workshops for young people in Govan.
