‘Ways of Seeing’: Women and Photography in Scotland Reception Event has been postponed, in consultation with event partners, due to ongoing concerns around Covid-19. 

What are Scottish women’s unique ways of seeing the world through the camera lens?

‘Ways of Seeing’ Exhibition Reception, Thursday 2nd April, 5pm to 7pm


At the library for one day only before it’s showing at Tenement House, Shutter Hub brings together an exhibition of women’s photography in response to the ‘Ways of Seeing’ symposium. Join us for an informal drinks reception between 5pm and 7pm, open to all.

The ‘Ways of Seeing’ symposium explores photographic portrayals of women through time and will challenge institutions to better use photographic collections to tell women’s stories. Find out more about the symposium here.

The NTS photographic holdings feature many women as takers, collectors, preservers and subjects. These include the collections of folklorist Margaret Fay Shaw, aristocrat Violet Brodie and Glaswegian typist Agnes Toward, all of which frequently depict women.


This event has been postponed.

As of Wednesday 18th March, Glasgow Women’s Library is closed until further notice. We believe that closing our doors is the best way to slow the spread of Covid-19. We are no longer taking bookings for events in our Spring programme, in the understanding that they may not go ahead. If you can check in at the end of April for updates on our website and social media, or by email, please do so. You can find more information on our response to Covid-19 here.

This event is for open to all and is free to attend. Please book below (you will be taken through the shopping cart but no charge will be made) or you can call us on 0141 550 2267. If you have booked a place and are no longer able to attend please let us know so that we can make your place available to someone else.
