Bank of SpringburnThe Neighbourhood
AT THE BANK OF SPRINGBURN, CONNECTION IS OUR CURRENCY.
At a time of financial crisis, where our money is worth less than ever and the trustworthy institutions of the past have deserted our high streets, we are proud to present a new kind of bank.
The Bank of Springburn is a pop-up arts space, where everything is free, and the only transactions are powered by the people. It's a hub for the local community to relax and enjoy a warm, welcoming space as well as hosting a range of workshops, drop-ins and live performances.
The Bank is also hosting a Poetry Take Away, where visitors can order a bespoke poem, written by Kevin P Gilday, about any subject personal to them, and collect it 30 minutes later.
Pop in for the free poetry, desk space, writing workshops or just a tea or coffee throughout the month of April or book now for free live performances every Saturday afternoon during April.
Bank of Springburn is located at Unit 29, Springburn Shopping Centre.
Created by award winning poet and theatre-maker Kevin P. Gilday as part of The Neighbourhood project.
