Collective Architecture


Jude Barber and Louise Welsh of The Empire Cafe


Join author Louise Welsh and architect Jude Barber of The Empire Cafe at the Clydeside Amphitheatre on the Broomielaw, Glasgow to explore the question 'Who owns the Clyde?'.

Louise and Jude will be based on the riverside for an afternoon of open and frank discussion around ownership and agency of the Clyde, the areas around it and who has rights and access.

They will be joined by Leader of the Council Cllr Susan Aiken, land reformer Andy Wightman and Cllr Graham Campbell, with other welcome guests.

Critically, passers-by will also be invited to share their thoughts and ideas during the course of the afternoon.

Contributions gathered during the session will form part of a new pilot podcast from The Empire Cafe team.

We hope you can come along to join the discussion, to make your voice heard and share any information you might have on this vital topic.
