Spirit of Revolt Archive hold lots of outreach events, where we try to bring the people to the archive, and bring their history to the people of Glasgow/Clydeside area. Some of these events are held in the Mitchell library, others in various venues across the city. Our most recent event was "Workers City" where we tried to bring to a wider public some of the flourishing activism in Glasgow of the period 1988-1993.
This video is now available for viewing on our Spirit of Revolt website, in the "Audio-Video" section.
you can view it here and perhaps it will encourage you to delve a little deeper into our vast collection historical documents, serials, letters, pamphlets, posters, photos, memorabilia, our audio and video collection and much much more. It is your history, a history you should be very proud of and share.
