Make Your Mark: A Tapestry for Glasgow
This is an ongoing digital event that you can complete any time you like! The Tapestry for Glasgow project is an expression of the People’s Plan for Glasgow through craftivism, aimed at bringing people together to physicalise our hopes and fears for Glasgow in fabric!
Guided by a pack and video-workshop that can be downloaded in 5 languages, participants will create a fabric square incorporating their own impressions of the city, inspired by re-imagining Glasgow’s Coat of Arms. Fabric and other craft materials will be available to pick up from the Pearce Institute, but we also encourage participants to use their own scraps or repurpose old clothes that might otherwise be thrown away. Fabric squares can be returned to the Pearce Institute, where they will be photographed for making digital artwork, ready to be joined with the other squares!
In honour of the COP26 conference, we wanted to begin the project by engaging with the city’s response to the global threat of climate change. One of our organisers contributed this square, with a poem reimagining Glasgow’s Coat of Arms for a greener, more just future.

SANE Guidelines for Safe and Inclusive Participation
SANE aims to create a welcoming space for all at all our events. Our guidelines for inclusive participation include adaptations from The Peace Education Institute’s Guidelines for Safer Spaces document.
- We will try to speak slowly and clearly for audiences and note-takers, particularly during online events.
- We will respect one another’s contributions. We will try not to talk over others, or interrupt. We will raise a hand to let the moderators know when we want to contribute, or the digital equivalent if the event is online.
- When introducing people, terms, theories or schools of thought, we will not assume everyone knows them. We will briefly and simply introduce them.
- We will not make assumptions about people (present or otherwise) based on their age, gender, health, abilities or other stereotypes. We recognize that inequality is systemic and internalised. We will make a conscious effort to resist ableism, racism, classism, ageism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia in our language, imagery, and examples.
- We respect pronouns. For online events, these are visible on the screen and can be set in the zoom re-naming function.
- We invite everyone to participate but respect everyone’s right to not participate as a basis for safety
- We understand that conflicting access needs exist, and we are committed to finding fair and accessible solutions to these conflicts. Please let us know if we can make an event more comfortable for you.
We welcome feedback prior to, during and after the events. You can do this by getting in touch with us by email. Any action taken following negative feedback will protect the anonymity of the complainer, if so desired.
