Ursula Kam-Ling Cheng’s piece for the Woven in Govan project was shaped through engagement sessions with local women – the final work exists as a representation of these conversations, featuring quotes and key themes relating to the care burden placed upon women. Ursula’s piece is currently on display at the wh·eat Cafe on Govan Road.
The film entitled, “Awakening The River”, is a collaboration between Fablevision, who co-ordinated the project, STAGE (Scottish Talent Across Generations Events), and the Greek Memory of Water EU artist, Ira Brami.
Directed and produced by Helen Kyle, the film provides a narrative of poems, music and photographs to evoke something of the essence of the river which has played such an important part in Govan and Glasgow’s history. Contributors include: “The Greatest Iron Ship” by Danny Kyle; “Clota, Goddess of the Clyde” performed by Louise Oliver; “Fear” by Kahlil Gibran (translated and performed by Michael Dempster) and “Braw Sailing on the Sea” by the Iona Fyfe Trio.
