In the nineteenth of our Glasgow Women’s Library podcasts Jackie Kay reads her 21 Revolutions pieces, Undercoat, Model House and Ingrid McClements’ Papers, and talks about her inspiration behind the work.
About 21 Revolutions
To mark the Library’s 21st anniversary in 2012, and with the support of funding from Creative Scotland and Museums Galleries Scotland, GWL commissioned 21 women writers and 21 women artists to create new work inspired by items and artefacts in our collections.
These new pieces of writing have drawn upon campaign badges, knitting patterns, Suffragette memorabilia, album covers, recipe books, feminist newsletters and other gems found within GWL’s thousands of archive boxes or amongst the hundreds of Library shelves.
