For over 100 years the Fairfield Shipyard offices were central to the lives of so many people living in Govan and Glasgow. When Govan Workspace purchased the Fairfield building in 2009 it was our hope that it would become a valuable resource and focal point to restore the pride and vitality of a once thriving community.Â Participation and engagement are therefore central to our work. Fairfield Heritage Centre will be working with schools and communities to develop many learning opportunities.
Adult and Community Learning
We are keen to work with people of all ages and abilities over the next eighteen months as we prepare to open the Heritage Centre. Future community learning projects will include object handling, oral history and reminiscence sessions as well as arts, photography and film-making opportunities.Â We hope that some of this work will be showcased in our new temporary exhibition space.
If you have an idea for a collaborative project or are interested in working with us to explore Govan’s local history and the legacy of Fairfield please get in touch with our Fairfield Co-ordinator, Abigail Morris by phoning 0141 445 5866 or email:Â firstname.lastname@example.org
