Glasgow Women’s Library receives many requests and suggestions from people to work with us. We regularly receive suggestions for exhibitions, talks, arts projects, storytelling, creative writing and other events, activities and learning programme ideas. The process for receiving these proposals is through our ‘Working with GWL’ application form.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation we are, like everyone, facing new operational and logistical challenges. The staff team are not furloughed at this time, they are working from home which creates challenges and opportunities for new ways of working. We have taken the decision to pause the Working With GWL application process as we focus on this current and changing situation, reflect on our priorities, deliver our programming in new ways and collect and record what is happening at this time. We continue to be committed to working collaboratively with partners and are active in discussions with colleagues across the creative and cultural sectors but in terms of immediate programming we are prioritising bringing work to fruition (begun pre Covid) with some of our existing partners and, or having a more self-directive focus as further priorities form. As always we are keen to connect with colleagues to share ideas and good practice so our door is open for these conversations to happen where possible.
Over the coming months we hope to be posting opportunities to work and collaborate with us on our website. Updates of the ways we will be soliciting proposals or expressions of interest to work with GWL will be promoted through our website and social media channels.
Details on the Working With GWL application process are still available on our website here for reference but please note that we are not looking for submissions at this time.
