This workshop on Wednesday 2nd December from 2pm to 4pm is a great opportunity to handle some of the objects and materials from our accredited museum and discover some of the stories behind them.  And if are or have been involved in campaigns yourself, whether for women’s rights or other causes, why not bring an object with you?

About the festival:

The Only Way is Ethics is an 8-day ethical festival, which will take place across Glasgow from 29 November to 6 December 2015. It will culminate in a 2-day Vegfest event at the SECC.

The main focus will be on social responsibility, social inclusion and the rights of animals but more widely, the aim is to open a city-wide conversation on ethical thinking.
