FONDS - Stories Of People Through Objects They Love

About FONDS - Stories Of People Through Objects They Love

We celebrate the opening of a new community gallery at Tramway, the Greater Govanhill Community Canvas, with its first display.

FONDS, a new photography exhibition, film and podcast, tells the stories of Govanhill through some of its residents' most treasured objects, and invites listeners to embark on a captivating journey through their lives.

Told through photography and in the participants' own words, FONDS is a project about how the evocative objects we keep connect us to the people and places we love.

Some of the objects included in the collection are a glass fish, a box of spells, a wooden boat, a sticking plaster, and a teddy bear. From Pakistan to Syria, Turkey to Hong Kong, the objects featured represent stories of migration, transformation, love, and resilience.

The exhibition is accompanied by a film, and a podcast series. Search for FONDS wherever you get your podcasts.

The Greater Govanhill Community Canvas can be found in our Upper Gallery and is accessible during Tramway's opening hours.
