New Understanding Glasgow films


In late 2012 the Glasgow Centre for Population Health (GCPH) commissioned a series of films, set in Glasgow, Renfrewshire and Inverclyde which aimed to reflect the lived experiences of local people and let them tell their own stories.

The first four films - ‘Working Men', ‘Sense of Place', ‘Young Mums' and ‘Bolting Doors, Mending Fences' - cover a wide range of issues which affect people living in the South West of Scotland, such as unemployment, regeneration, community spirit and parenthood. The videos provide useful insights into addressing poverty and health issues, and you'll see some persevering and determined community activism on display!

The films accompany the GCPH's Understanding Glasgow project, a resource that illustrates issues of importance to Glasgow's population, such as health, poverty, education, and environment.

GCPH is interested in getting feedback on the films and in hearing your ideas about how they can use them and about any events or organisations they can work with to share them.
