East End Library Finalist in Museum of the Year Competition.

The Glasgow Women’s Library is one of the east end’s hidden treasures.

Located in Bridgeton it is the only accredited museum in the UK dedicated to women’s lives, history and achievements.

The museum is open to everyone and hosts a variety of events within its beautiful award-winning building in Landressy Street.

The museum was also nominated for the Art Fund museum of the year award 2018 which is the world biggest museum prize and the UK’s largest arts award which awards £100,000 to the winning museum.

While Glasgow Women’s Library was beaten out by Tate St Ives it is still amazing that an east end establishment is being given such high praise and recognition for all the amazing work it does in sharing stories and achievements of women past and present, in their everyday lives and also their careers with the public worldwide .

The museum received a lot of support from the Glasgow public on twitter who was finally happy to see such an amazing establishment given the widespread publicity it deserves.

Since the competition, Glasgow Women’s Library has been host to other amazing events and keeps its events calendar packed full of amazing workshops, inspirational talks and exhibitions all about amazing and talented women who already have and currently are creating a different future for women worldwide.
