University of the West of Scotland and Govan Docks Regeneration Trust are hosting a Seminar at Film City Glasgow (401 Govan Road, Glasgow G51 2QJ) focused on the past, present and potential futures for Govan’s historic Graving Docks. Tuesday, 23rd May 2023 from 9.30am to 1.00pm.

The docks have been fascinating for academics, artists and urban historians for the last 4 decades producing inspiration for several academic studies and artistic interventions.

With recent announcements of Government funding awarded to develop the site coupled with the need for ownership (and responsibility) to sit with the community and public sector, the morning of Tuesday 23rd May offers an opportunity to explore the possibilities and potential.

The aim is to consider academic research on the topic and to explore potential options for community led development. We want to provide a space to think about the docks at this exciting time, in advance of more detailed discussions.
