The Race Relations Act made history across the UK, but how did it affect women’s lives here in Glasgow? The First Waves Exhibition speaks of women’s experience of Race Relations across Glasgow through photographic portraits and digital audio works crafted by Scarlett Crawford, UK Parliament Artist in Residence for this project.

Meet artist Scarlett Crawford and some of the local women involved in the project at the launch of this powerful exhibition. Find out more about First Waves here.

The women shared such heartfelt, empowering and moving stories about their experiences in Glasgow before and after the race relations legislation was introduced. They conveyed this through their audio recordings which are touching and funny and also through the powerful participatory photographs that we produced together.” – Scarlett Crawford
