In 2023, GALLANT’s Community Collaboration team at the University of Glasgow partnered with Open Aye, a participatory photography CIC, to embark on an impactful community photography project. This collaboration aimed to recognise & connect with sustainable community initiatives thriving in Glasgow. Over six months, Open Aye conducted a transformative five-week participatory photography programme involving 37 local community members residing in diverse Glasgow neighbourhoods, who actively participated in workshops resulting in over 12,000 photographs. These images provide a hyper-local view of GALLANT’s core themes: Flood Risk, Biodiversity Loss, Vacant and Derelict Land, Active Travel and Inclusive Mobility, and Sustainable Energy. The exhibition is a narrative woven from local experiences with these GALLANT themes. Within this collection, you may encounter images reflecting diverse states of active travel infrastructure, dedicated efforts to repurpose vacant land, social inequalities, community gardens, & environmental activism. Each photograph offers a snapshot of the present, providing critical reflections on our current state & hope for a more sustainable future.
