Tomorrow and Tomorrow...



The Identity project is rapidly approaching the finish line, with these next 2 months set to be very busy. Our new website will be launching in May, as will Kith and Kin, the book written by our fabulous project volunteers. As a wee taster for both the book and the website, here is a chapter of the book by Alex Hardie, narrated by one of our project team Craig Miller.





Over the next few weeks, as well as keeping you up to date on Identity's events and launches, we're also going to be taking a look at developments within The Dutch Gable House. Inverclyde Community Development Trust run both the Identity project and Dutch Gable House (and lots of other cool stuff as well) and when the Identity project concludes, we'll be changing the focus of this blog to tell the story of the Dutch Gable and it's ongoing redevelopment as a community space for arts, heritage and enterprise. All the Identity material will still be here however, as well as on the new dedicated project website.

The Gable recently secured some additional resource from Inverclyde Council's Community Facilities Fund, and will be opening again over the next few months following some more refurbishment. In the meantime, our shop is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 - 4.
