About this Event

“Hard Edges Scotland is the most comprehensive study ever carried out around severe and multiple disadvantage (SMD). It lays bare the scale and nature of the ways in which extreme disadvantages – homelessness, substance dependency, offending, mental health and domestic violence and abuse – overlap. It brings to life the unhealthy reliance on ‘single issue’ services within Scotland, in particular, the limiting effect this singular focus has on frontline services to respond effectively to those experiencing multiple disadvantages. It also highlights the role of poverty, violence and trauma as routes into SMD, and the missed opportunities for preventative interventions. The narrative is based on the experiences of service providers, national stakeholders and, most importantly, those with lived experience.” – Christine Walker, Robertson Trust, July 5th 2019

Taking place in Category Is Books a queer independent bookshop and community space in Glasgow’s Southside, each workshop will focus on responding to the HardEdges Scotland report and supporting empowering analog and digital storytelling that puts the participant’s multiple and severe disadvantages at the core of a narrative and humanises them.

The workshops will concentrate on affective storytelling and building a compelling narrative, before giving the participants the opportunity to work in media specific to analog (zine) and digital (film/journalism) outputs. The participants will have the environment in which they can reflect on their personal and collective disadvantages, as well as discover a new community – throughout history, walking tour or out of big data of the Hard Edges research.

The facilitators are GSA researcher and maker Jonah Coman and independent academic and journalist Dr Jennifer Jones.

All zine making materials and refreshments (including drinks and hot snacks) will be supplied. Weather permitted, there will be some light walking around the community as part of the discovery process.

Travel bursaries are available for those who may require it to travel from within Glasgow to the Southside.

We will be using #hardedgesscotland to gather digital content across social media platforms.
