Anniversary notes on attempts to date and place a poem (p.117)- Ama Ata Aidoo

Letter in January and in the notes section at the end of the book Barby discovered that the poem is placed in Glasgow and dated September 21, 1991. We are now 30 years on from that date and are marking this anniversary and noting that her words continue to resonate today.

Scotland: the climate crisis and a changing landscape

Drink in the Beauty is an exhibition of work from Glasgow Museums’ collection at GOMA which will open to the public on 4 June 2021. The show looks at landscapes and nature through art and encourages us to think about how nature is changing as we interact with it – positively and negatively. Today is Earth Day and in advance of this show we are publishing this blog post which talks about how the climate crisis is affecting animals and the landscape in Scotland.
