- Explore ways in which humans use fossil fuels in everyday life- not only for energy but in many of our everyday goods such as plastic.
-.Provide ideas for interdisciplinary learning activities which can be used at class / home to allow pupils to explore the impacts of human activity and the greener choices we can all make.
- Highlight resources and sources of further information.

Kirtan at GoMA

Join us at GoMA - Glasgow Museums to experience Sikh devotional music, kirtan, while surrounded by the work of Nirbhai ’Nep' Singh Sidhu.

Sidhu draws on the sound world of kirtan in his works. This event is intended to introduce the audience to the sounds of Sikh devotional music as part of our programme to accompany this exhibition.

We can provide seating if you have accessibility needs, please let a member of staff know at the entrance.

Kirtan will be performed by young students from the Guru Ramdas Keertan Academy, founded by Hardeep Singh Deerhe in Glasgow.

**Doing it Greener: Museum Conservation**

Clothes moths are perfectly adapted to living indoors. All they need is keratin protein, which is hair, skin, fur, wool, silk & feathers etc. If they don't find a nice lambswool sweater to live on they can live quite happily on household dust which contains hairs and tiny flakes of shed skin.

Museum buildings have lots of objects that are at risk and our job is to display them and preserve them for future generations, just like your wool jumper.
We sometimes have to use chemical sprays or fumigants to do this, but we have learnt to reduce the problem by having a few dust traps in our buildings. By making our buildings easier to clean we reduce time and energy spent on housekeeping and minimise the use of chemicals.

Inspired by tartan plaid worn by Lord Mungo Murray have fun weaving a wall hanging from sustainable, natural materials in these craft videos. Our learning and curatorial teams have been working hard to help everyone think about how we use precious resources. As COP 26 approaches and in the years ahead, little changes to how we live and create can make a big difference!

The GoMA Youth Group is pleased to announce that sinking feeling, their upcoming exhibition, which will be on show in the GoMA - Glasgow Museums Commonspace from the 11th September 2021 until 9th January 2022!

that sinking feeling is the final output from the 2020/21 GoMA Youth Group (GYG), a collective of young people aged 16-25. This year’s GYG have been working with the Gallery of Modern Art since September 2020. Through this collaboration, they hope to influence the Gallery to be a space where young people feel represented.

We are currently living through an age of a global pandemic amongst a climate crisis. Too often, the voices of young people have been ignored. that sinking feeling, title of a 1979 Glaswegian film, is a creative exploration of the experiences of young people living through this turbulent time. For many of us, the pandemic and climate crisis have presented losses in our lives. Yet, navigating through this, we have also found new ways of living and finding joy.

that sinking feeling displays artworks from six members of the group, whilst the other four members were responsible for the curation of the show.

GoMA Youth Group members: Lily Allspaugh, Aqsa Arif, Benjamin Hall, Jennifer Logan, Natalie Lorimer, Hayley McDonald, Emily Brooks Millar, Kirsty Reid, Connor Ross, Hollie Wade

The GoMA Youth Group is funded by the Scottish Government’s Youth Arts Fund through Creative Scotland with the support from Youth Music Initiative and Time to Shine.

The exhibition is open during GoMA's opening times. Admission to GoMA is free and no tickets needed!

Wonderful to be able to share our WWI programme of exhibitions and displays, including the emotive Brushes with War exhibition currently making its European debut at Kelvingrove Museum, with our Spanish speaking friends.
We're glad you enjoyed our WWI exhibition and displays. With the centenary of the end of the First World War approaching on Sunday, Kelvingrove Museum is the perfect spot to reflect, or learn a little more about this tragic time in history.
Glasgow is the city of Mackintosh, the forerunner of modernity (architecture and design) with many museums (all free!). It also has a medieval part and street art that makes it very pleasant to visit -->

Pic shows Will Cooper, curator at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow (GoMA) where one of the most unusual exhibitions to be staged there comes to an end on Thursday (March 18). Mr. Cooper could be forgiven if he feels a certain sense of relief when it closes. For he’s had the task of making sure that the living plants which feature in the show haven’t died during its three months’ run. Artist Aaron Angell, a keen gardener, planted a miniature Victorian greenhouse with ferns and mosses as part of the exhibition. And Will Cooper reveals that, even on his days off, he’s been returning to the gallery to water them. He says: “Aaron would have been very upset if the plants had died so I felt personally responsible for their care.”
