This episode is a conversation with the artist Mandy McIntosh.
Mandy grew up in Glasgow and in South Africa. She has lived in different parts of the city, but in this episode we pay particular attention to her time in Sighthill.
We talk about her life growing up both here and away and what her experience of Sighthill was. We then talk about her studies and travels, taking in Paris, Ireland and Australia.
Our conversation also goes into the nature of social housing and community, then we talk about Scots lingustic identity. We also celebrate the impact that Mrs Winters, Mandy’s art teacher had on her life.
Thanks for listening!
