Volunteer Opportunity

We are looking for a volunteer to assist on our project, Graphic Impact: Our Lives in Print at Glasgow Print Studio.

About the Project

Glasgow Print Studio is a fine art print workshop and gallery, with a collection of prints and related material dating from the 1970s to the present day. We collect prints made by our members and by invited artists from Scotland and wider afield as well as supporting material (blocks and plates) and items relating to the history of the organisation. However, our records include little material recording the early days of GPS (c. 1972-1990), and while half of our founding members were women, their role in running the workshop and developing the Studio has not been reflected in our ‘official story’. This project has been set up to address that need. The project began in April 2018 with the recording of oral histories to enrich our collection. These interviews, plus other research into artists and the organisation will be used to make a digital resource at the end of the project.

The Role

Main Duties

  1. Creating transcriptions and summaries of interviews
