This in-conversation event with Alyne E. Jones (Vanishing Scotland Archive) and Professor Hugh Cheape (University of the Highlands and Islands), explores aspects of cultural heritage relating to ‘Glean: Early 20th Century Women Filmmakers and Photographers in Scotland’. The event will be hosted by the exhibition’s curator Jenny Brownrigg (The Glasgow School of Art, curator of Glean). A number of the women in the exhibition used photography and filmmaking as a way to record a disappearing way of life in Scotland. This discussion will give a wider context to the exhibited works, considering how to read the photographs from a cultural heritage perspective - considering the built and natural environment and cultures and practices of the communities the women recorded - in order to explore the stories that the photographs have to tell.
