#Still Seeing Things June 2020: Maud Sulter & Sheila Hicks

At GWL, we have a group called Seeing Things. The Seeing Things group get together to explore cultural events across Glasgow, such as (but not limited to!) art, music, theatre or comedy. Since the start of 2014, the group has visited exhibitions, art and performance events in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Since April 2020 we have taken Seeing Things online and despite the fact we’re staying at home we’re #StillSeeingThings and showcasing the work of women creatives from around the world.

Every other Wednesday afternoon at 12.30pm a GWL Volunteer takes over @womenslibrary Twitter (and sometimes Instagram!) to guide a virtual visit to an online exhibition or museum archive. No prior knowledge or interest is necessary and all are welcome to ask questions and share thoughts.

As it’s easy to miss things that happen on Twitter we’re gathering together the resources from each ‘trip’ so you can catch up in your own time… here’s what we saw in June!
