These lunchtime events look at five items drawn from the extensive Glasgow Museums collections. Each will have significance to collaboration and empowering change through history. Each event will be accompanied by a podcast and will include expert commentary and comment for the Glasgow Museum Curators. You can participate in the debate and comment through the social channels and learn more about how collaboration has brought about change and influenced our collective history.
For the second piece, join curator John Messner on a guided walk around Riverside Museum’s 1938 Glasgow Coronation tram. When introduced this tram was the height of luxury, providing transport to the 1938 Empire Exhibition for millions of visitors. The tram was designed in the Art Deco-style and its design was never bettered in Glasgow.
