30th April - 2nd May 2010.

Streetland is a programme of exhibitions, performances and events in and around Westmoreland Street, Govanhill, that took place on the week end 30th April - 2nd May. 

It included a very varied selection of events: open-air film screenings, hula- hooping, pedal powered scaletrix racing and a range of public artworks including two contributions from a group of young artists from the Create programme.

Working with artists and tutors Sharon Quigley and Beth Forde, and with Paul Steer, Arts Development Worker for Project Ability, the young artists Michael Earll, Pauline Jackson, Otis Berry and Tony Johanson made a number of visits to the Westmoreland Street area, making drawings and taking photos as a starting point. They were interested in making artworks in response to the area and were very struck with the diversity of the cultures.

As a result, the four young artists created a beautiful mural made of drawings, paper cuts and collages, and got to enjoy the other events on offer. A very good week end indeed!
