The Significance of Colour

This publication came from Tackling Sectarianism, a four-year programme (2011–2015) that delivered a series of anti-sectarian workshops in partnership with Parent Network Scotland. During this time, we worked with over 40 organisations in central Scotland to explore different ways of reducing sectarian attitudes and behaviours.

'The significance of colour was so important to people during the workshops that it had to be the title for the book'.
Kate Black, Creative Director

Postcards from Pandemic

When the world began to close down in March 2020, In Cahootz Creative Citizens were due to perform Oor Carol & the Seagulls. Keeping everyone busy and creatively engaged was a priority and a What’s App group was created to keep everyone connected and Postcards from Pandemic was born. The group chat was then collated and produced into a newspaper to show how the members kept in contact during lockdown through photos, creative tasks and postcards from all over Glasgow and beyond. In July 2021 the newspaper went on to be an exhibition at Glasgow’s Trongate 103 gallery. You can download the publication in PDF format here.

From 2019–2021 Creative Citizens took part in Creative Writing workshops facilitated by playwright and tutor, Jenny Knotts, PhD. Each week participants would work on different texts and writing genres to develop their skills and stories. Over the 3 years these workshops took place in person and online, culminating in this collection of creative writing.
