  1. Clydeside Story: NOW ONLINE

    Leave a Comment

    No, really! We can’t believe it’s two years since we braved the cold at the Harland & Wolff shed for the stunning performance of Clydeside Story. Two years, since we watched in awe as the Kidz Club, the Create Crew, Arden Chillout, SWAMP, Vivace and Brightnight International took to the 3 stages under a fantastic light and laser show.   The project was filmed throughout and we premiered the film at the BBC Quay Festival during the 2014 Commonwealth Games.   Last year, to celebrate the 1st anniversay, we screened the film at the Pearce Institute.

    Now – two years on – take a seat, sit back and enjoy Clydeside Story: The Movie.

    We begin this new week with another new film from our collection. The GalGael promo film is now up online for all to see. Produced by John Bennett and Suzannah Tullis as part of our “Well Said” project last year, the film highlights the benefits that GalGael brings to the Southside of Glasgow.

    Check back next week for another film from our “Well Said” project.

  3. The puppets take shape

    Leave a Comment

    So this week our Wednesday and Friday Kidz Clubs took to designing their puppets. They decided on colour, shape and more importantly naming their puppets and deciding it’s personality. Don’t want to give too much away but we have a dog that’s super power is farts that make him fly and a frog that can leap into the sky. Some great ideas so far. I for one cannot wait to see these designs come to life…. Kidz Club Style!

  4. Well Said!: The Next Step

    Leave a Comment

    On Monday we will be launching the next phase of our Well Said! project – making films in, by and about the Govan community.

    With the Scottish Parliament elections coming up in May, we thought we’d take “Democracy” as a theme for the next sessions, which will run on Mondays from 14th March, from 1pm to 4pm.  If you have a story to share or a BIG issue you’d like to talk about, then we want to hear from you. The more local voices we have, the better…no experience is necessary and we promise you will be made very welcome.

    (Mondays, 1-4pm at The Portal, 978 Govan Road, GLASGOW G51 3AJ)

    In the meantime, we’d like you to sit back and relax as we present “The Wee Bauchle” – a short drama produced last year as part of the project…Enjoy!

    On Friday our Portal Kidz Club got started on their brand new project, Puppet Making led by Chani and boy did they get involved. By the end of the first session not only had everyone completed a finger puppet of their own but we also got a little show. Have a look at some of the pictures of them at work.
