Tenements Talking

A Walking Workshop on Tenements' over a Hundred Years Life

A row of tenement buildings with cars parked outside the houses.

What’s on offer?

Tenements Talking is a walking workshop about the change of Glasgow’s tenements over the years.

What’s it about?

During the workshop, we will walk among the tenements as living monuments of the change of Glasgow’s urban scene within the last century. We will discuss tenements’ stories starting from their construction and moving to the rent strikes which took place in Glasgow tenement neighbourhoods and spread over the UK. We will also discuss tenements’ adaptation to modern life and technology over the years. The workshop is designed as an active discussion platform rather than a tour.

Who’s leading the event?

Dr Bilge Serin, Lecturer of Urban Studies at the University of Glasgow
