What did 2012 mean to Glasgow?
GLASGOW Museums has issued a call for artefacts which show just what 2012 was like for the city’s families.
The organisation is asking for suggestions of objects which sum up the last year – everyday items which may seem alien to the generations to come.
Dr Ellen McAdam, head of Glasgow Museums, explained: “We want ordinary objects with good stories attached. It doesn’t have to be new or in the box.
“Or it could be something fantastic that happened for you in that year – perhaps a local club won a trophy or something.
“The stories are just as valuable as the objects. The objects can’t speak for themselves – they need human voices attached”.
Anyone who wishes to share a suggestion can do so via the Glasgow Museums website, before a deadline of January 27.
The ideas will be sorted through and final decisions made at a collection meeting, with an exhibition of the chosen pieces to be show later in 2013.
