Influential feminist artist Suzanne Lacy visited Scotland in 2007. She was involved in a formal process of reflection on the Oakland Projects, California (1990 to 2000). Sixteen artists, theorists and curators engaged with culture and policy were invited to form an intense, unique learning space, ‘Working in Public’, curated by Lacy. Records of this gathering, found in the Janice Parker collection, are the starting point of a discussion between Janice, Adele Patrick (GWL) and other ‘Working in Public’ participants about creative legacies, and feminist archiving as Janice reflects on her own practice and Glasgow Women’s Library marks its 25th anniversary.
