    PROTEST! Synopsis
    At a time of intense public activism both at home and across the globe, explore the varied and fascinating history of public protest in the UK with the Independent Cinema Office’s new archive film programme: Britain on Film: Protest!

    From a 1910 suffragette demonstration to striking coal miners in the Rhondda Valley, from female CND protesters spanning the Tamar Bridge to the defeat of fascists at London’s Cable Street, this absorbing, illuminating collection examines the nature of protests large and small and for causes regional and national, by participants fighting for suffrage and democracy, against exploitation and inequality, for fair wages and worker’s rights, for public safety, freedom and community and in the face of war and oppression.
    Sourced from the national and regional archives and newly digitised, Britain on Film: Protest! tells a story not just about specific protests and their causes but about a tumultuous social, political and economic century and the constant, dynamic presence of public dissent and its effects as a weapon of change – at a time when raising our voices feels more essential than ever.

  3. iPads and Strawberry Tarts?

    Leave a Comment

    Week 7 of learning how to use IPads for our seniors group looked more like a scene from the Great British Bake Off as they tucked into a platter of strawberry tarts for Roberts birthday!  The mood was buoyant, so it was a great opportunity to have a creative session, brainstorming ideas for a music video to accompany the groups self-penned song, “the Govan Town Rag”.

    Their creative ideas were flowing just as quick as the cups of tea with enough great suggestions for the music videos, this group really know their stuff!  Looking at the history of Govan through the power of google opens up access to a plethora of images and historical detail on the area which fits perfectly with the song.  Everyone is looking forward to the next stage where they will be learning how to put together the various elements of a music video using, of course, the ipads.

     

  4. Seniors internet adventures….

    Leave a Comment

    The seniors group internet adventure continues, this week travelling the world using google maps.  We looked at satellite images of where we are now then expanding it to destinations further afield like Liverpool and India.  After zooming into street view, we used google to calculate the distance to travel using a variety on methods including how far it would be to walk it!

    Always an important thing to know when in Scotland is, “what will the weather be like today?” so our intrepid seniors used the BBC weather app to plan their activities for the week ahead.

    Introducing the google app to the groups was a real eye opener for them and some time was spent finding out about things they had always wanted to now but, didn’t know how to go about it.  There was a real “wow” moment when they realised that literally anything, they wanted to know about was “online” and accessible at the touch of a button well, several buttons!

    After refuelling on tea and biscuits, they looked for images of hobbies or things that interested them.  The group were then tasked with searching for specific images relating to a song that the group had previously written called “The Govan Town Rag”  which is about the diverse Govan community e.g. kids playing, the people who live here, what they do, what the area is like.  One of the group found a picture of herself as a young child at primary school, you can imagine her delight!

    There is no stopping them now, roll on next week…..

  5. Seniors – iPad

    Leave a Comment

    Plantation Productions senior group are only on week 5 of learning how to use Ipads for everyday things and we are struggling to keep up with them!

    After recapping on what they learnt last week, this week they picked up the pace and learned how to take photos, make an album and how to move photos to different locations.  They’ve learnt some tricks too like spotlight search and using photo booth which is a photograph filter app.

    The room fell silent at points due to the intense concentration of the group only to be interjected by the tutors instructions and some members egging each other on by saying “have you done that yet, I’m onto this bit”,  all meant in good faith!

    Not forgetting a friend who has off through illness for a few weeks, the group wrote a heartfelt message on a flipchart board and took a photograph to send their best wishes all using their ipads.

     

    Cant wait to see what they do next week

  7. Burns Supper

    Leave a Comment

    Our wonderful senior’s group celebrated the life and poetry of the National Bard Rabbie Burns in style this week.

    Before tucking into the traditional haggis, neeps and tatties, Robert presented the haggis to the skirl of the bagpipes followed by Mitch who addressed the haggis with a passionate speech and Tom who gave an inspiring rendition of the Selkirk Grace.

    After finishing off the meal with apple pie and custard the group had a fair old knee’s up which Rabbie himself would have been proud of!

    Jack delivered a thought provoking and funny toast to the lassies with his lovely wife Marion matching him with an expertly delivered witty reply.

    A great time was had by all and we can’t wait to do it all again next year!

    What a fantastic night…there was singing, dancing and a film too!

    The film called,‘Time and Time again’ was about Govan in the 1970’s. The seniors’ acting was spectacular and gritty making a really captivating film with historical accuracy.

    The atmosphere was electric  as the seniors took to the stage. They sang their hearts out, and read out some of their own poems. Jack’s had the audience laughing out loud where as Bob had penned a very thought provoking, soul-searching poem

    They did themselves proud!

    We also had the pleasure of the Govan Allsorts choir who wore tartan skirts and performed a dance routine, they were ‘geen it laldy’ with old Scottish Songs, we danced the night away!

    What a cracking night full of fun, laughter and singing!

    A special shout out to Frankie and Alison who were unable to make it in person on the night but were there in spirit!

    Frankie thank you for the gorgeous flowers!

    Thursday 22nd of November was the first studio rehearsal that the senior group had with their musical director.

    The studio was incredible, filled to the brim with keyboards, double basses and numerous guitars

    The atmosphere was electric and there were good vibes all round.

    This created excitement and nervous energy within the group as they were put into their semi- circle position ready to sing their hearts out! They sounded amazing.

    It’s only one more rehearsal until the show – Friday 30th November.

    It’s going to be a cracking show!

    Leave a Comment

    CAN YOU HELP? (Again) …You have all been amazing so far, but we have one more appeal to help the Seniors Film Club Film put the finishing touches to their film “Time and Time Again”…. We are looking for photos (or film if you have it) of the people and places of Govan in 1971 (or thereabouts).

    Whether it’s funny family pics, dodgy fashions, work photos or snaps of Govan landmarks, we want to get an idea of how Govan REALLY looked at the time.

    To keep us right with copyright we need to get permission from the person who owns the images to use it in our film, so if you are cool with that, please get in touch…

    You can contact Angela on 0141 445 1666 or email angela@plantation.org.uk.

    You could also drop by to the Seniors Film Club on Thursday 29th November, between 2 and 4pm and we will copy and return your images there and then.

    Or, feel free to post on our Facebook blog, and we’ll get in touch with you from there.

    Here’s a couple from Nan from the group to get us started.

    Last Friday saw a fun-filled evening of music and entertainment as the Portal Seniors Film Club presented the world premiere of their latest film ‘Govan Stars in their Eyes’.

    The film, which is a parody on the popular nineties T.V program, sees the group perform as various music legends including Patsy Cline, Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney. Was brilliant to see those in attendance singing and clapping along to the tunes. We were also lucky enough to have the Govan Allsorts Choir open the show for us.

    A big thank you to everyone who came along.  We will keep you posted on future screenings.

    With the completion of their radio drama, 12 Angry Men and Wimmin, the Portal’s Seniors Club are now moving on to their next project, music videos. Each member has selected a track from their favourite musician’s catalogue (choices ranging from Judy Garland to Oasis) and will record their own rendition of the song in a recording studio. With those recordings, the club will then perform in front of camera to produce their very own music video, dressed as their chosen artist.

    Below are some images taken from our dress rehearsal last week.

  25. See 12 ‘Angry Men & Wimmin’ Live

    Leave a Comment

    Tomorrow afternoon, The Portal Seniors’ Club proudly presents a performance of their new radio comedy, ’12 Angry Men & Wimmin’, live at Plantation Productions.

    Since last October, the group have collaborated with Bryan Tolland in creating the original musical comedy, envisaged as a radio play.The piece is very loosely based on the stage play ’12 Angry Men’ by Reginald Rose, which was immortalised in the film starring Henry Fonda. ’12 Angry Men & Wimmin’ developed following a song-based musical recording project which the group created with Bryan. Tomorrow will be the first chance to hear ’12 Angry Men & Wimmin’ in it’s entirety. There will also be a live performance of the play’s soundtrack by Bryan and the club.

    So come along to The Portal tomorrow afternoon at 2pm for a bit of live music, comedy and maybe some strawberry tarts.

    Our Seniors club are having a difficult time putting down their musical instruments lately. After a great performance at Life Is A Cabaret last October, the group are now working with Bryan Tolland on a satirical radio comedy, 12 Angry Men (With Some Angry Wimmin), inspired by Reginald Rose’s 1954 drama. Along with lending their voices for the various characters, the play will feature songs written and performed by the club.

    Gallery 966 last Thursday evening saw participants from the Community Ceramics Project gather together to enjoy the beautiful finished ceramic work from the project, which has been running in the Portal AIR Space this year. The exhibition displayed ceramic tiles designed and created by pupils from Govan High School (S2), The Portal AIR Space Art class and The Portal Seniors Film Club.
    During the project, the use of architectural ceramics in traditional buildings in Govan was explored and people had the opportunity to make some new ceramic tiles. Through local walks and visits to tenement ‘wally’ closes and public buildings around Govan, a variety of traditional architectural ceramics including decorative wall tiles and floor mosaics were seen and documented, and some of the typical design styles such as Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco were explored.
    The project has been implemented as part of the Govan Cross Townscape Heritage Initiative, and aims to raise awareness of the importance and special character of Govan’s listed buildings alongside the wider conservation and regeneration work currently being carried out in the Central Govan area.

    The AIR Space has been a hive of dusty creative activity recently, since the community ceramics project has got underway.

    Through a series of talks and discussions, local walks and hands-on ceramic tile making workshops, people have been investigating the historic use of architectural ceramics such as tile and mosaic work in traditional buildings in Govan, discovering original features still existing in tenement ‘Wally’ closes, shopfronts entranceways and significant public buildings in the area.

    People have also been designing and making new tiles, experiencing the entire ceramic production process through the stages of designing, sculpting, mould making, pressing, glazing and firing the clay to make the finished tiles.

    The project will be running over the next few months – look out for an exhibition of the ceramic work made in the Autumn at Gallery 966.

    The ceramics project is run by Portal Artists in Residence Sarah Bland, Fiona Fleming & Geraldine Greene, and is part of the Govan Cross Townscape Heritage Initiative, funded by Glasgow City Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

  35. World War One Radio Drama

    1 Comment

    Following our very successful and highly exclaimed “Christmas Carol” Radio drama Plantation’s seniors who have now teamed with the Wonderful Sunny Govan Radio, have been working tirelessly on their world war one radio news drama, which will will depict the lives of several fictitious Govanites, who are based upon real people, as they live and die through this senseless war.

    Heather from Sunny Govan along with her incredibly talented son Alex came along to join in and get a flavor of what the group have been working on, and give us their ideas.

    We have almost completed our research of the events and have begun working on character profiles, some based upon real people, real events and real emotions. We also began improvisations between characters which generated a scene that was electrifying to watch, and let us begin to breath life into the characters.

    Even though the group had fun and there were , as usual lots of laughs, a true understanding and reverence for those who lived through the war, and keeping things light then becomes a tool that can give us a breath from some of the harrowing information we are uncovering.

    Well, Santa Claus has only 13 short weeks to get all his toys ready for the good girls and boys. With this in mind, The Seniors Film Club running every Thursday have taken some time out of their documentary on World War One, and begun preparation for their up and coming production of “Christmas Memories” a mix of Live performance, Video and even Radio.

    The group will explore Christmas and what it means to them, as well as taking up Christmas Challenges such as making their own traditional toys and Christmas Decorations, Writing and Performing Christmas Poem and Songs and even getting into the kitchen for a special Christmas Master Chef.

    They also will take on the roles of  Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, as they perform a live radio performance of Charles Dickens immortal classic “A Christmas Carol”

    There will be no “Bah Humbugs!” By the time we get done. Govan won’t have felt this festive since Bing Crosby danced with Danny Kay.

    Lets jingle all the way.

  37. Govan Banners Screening at Kinning Park

    Seniors at KP Cinema Club

    A big thanks to Michael, Liam and Laura Jane at the KPC Social Cinema Club for making us feel very welcome at the screening of “The Govan Banners” on Tuesday night.

    By great coincidence we had Sheila and Ernest in the audience – two young people from Spain, who had come to the Complex for a yoga class, but decided to stay for the film instead (sorry, yoga teacher). After the screening, Ernest shared his own family stories and they informed us that they had not been aware that people from Scotland had gone to fight fascism in the Spanish Civil War. We had an interesting and heartfelt discussion and by the end of the night the group had gained yet another group of young fans.
