Symbol of Glasgow

I was recently asked by Underbelly to be Glasgow’s Young Artist to work with young people to help answer the question:

What symbol best represents Glasgow?

I was based at the Tramway, Glasgow for my Glasgow Artist Workshop and through discussions and workshop activities, we managed to decide on Glasgow’s symbol. Now what?!

Each symbol will be made into a large wicker sculpture and paraded at the Edinburgh Torchlight Procession on 30 December for Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations and to celebrate the finale of Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018, after sitting on Edinburgh’s High Street from December the 21st-29th. I had an amazing time working on this and I cannot wait for you to see the final outcome! Keep your eyes peeled at Hogmanay!
