The Franki Raffles Residency
Mandy McIntosh is Artist in Residence for the Women of Glasgow, based between Castlemilk Community and Glasgow Women’s Library. The aims of the project are to reflect on the legacy of Franki Raffles’ work within the Zero Tolerance campaign.
Zero Tolerance launched in 1992 to radically highlight violence against women. The collective title of the project is The Central Role of Zero. The artist perceives the original campaign as an absolute statement to grow from and considers broader aspects of 0 as a symbol and a space for women.
Working with women’s groups, services and individuals, Mandy McIntosh will shape new work for women in the city.
