Civic Street open day, Glasgow

Civic Street open day, Glasgow

Two woman smiling broadly carry a garden sack on a frame on their shoulders. There's an industrial looking building and a sea container in the background.

On May 7th Agile City CIC are launching our first Civic Street open day alongside our partners Bike For Good and Glasgow Tool Library. Volunteer, get involved and drop-in for a day of cooking, building, mural painting, tool-fixing, bike riding and more!

Across the whole day there will be various activities to get involved with and a served lunch at 1pm. All ages welcome.

All activities are free but some are ticketed so please check before arriving.

Tickets can be booked on Eventbrite.

Taking the site as a commons, a resource to be shared, we ask you to get involved in activating the area through building, planting, growing, cooking and play. We will offer different levels of engagement through these hosted activities – allowing you to get as involved as you choose. In return we will give you the time and space to learn new skills, connect with the site and meet new people. Through this process of co-operation with each other and the ecology of the street we hope to create a hub of collaboration, community and democratic exchange which will shape the development of the site into the future.

Programme of workshops & activities:

Introduction to sourdough-, pasta- & cheese-making with Sean Hussain / Good Stuff*

Free but ticketed

Learn to make handmade sourdough, pasta and ricotta in a tactile and fun workshop with Good Stuff’s Sean Hussain. Working together as a team you will prepare and cook lunch for the other workshop participants while gaining basic skills in artisanal Italian inspired cooking. No experience necessary, vegetarian with vegan options available and allergy friendly!

*Please note that the cooking workshop will begin at 9.45am on 07/05/22


Wildlife habitat building with Matija Kraljić & Zoe Pearson

In this workshop you will build various habitats for the insects and wildlife of Civic Street, looking at the most simple ways to promote life and biodiversity in the area’s ecology.


Sounds of the site with Tino Kellighan & Michaela Pointon

Using found materials you will make instruments with Tino Kellighan and Michaela Pointon which will capture and contribute to the soundscapes of Civic Street.


Tool BigFix with Glasgow Tool Library

Glasgow Tool Library will be in the venue at Civic House where they will be running a tool ‘BigFix’ alongside a sort of teaching and surplus tools in the Civic Street Yard.
