Seeing Things Visit CCA: Shuvinai Ashoona & Glasgow Seed Library

18th February at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Seeing things

Seeing Things is a group that meet up to see art, performances and cultural events put on by women across Glasgow and beyond. We think it’s more fun to go to see things together, and we usually have a cup of tea or coffee afterwards.  Our trips are always free. It would be great if you could come along.
