Invitation to Making Routes 

Thursday 23 September at 7.00pm

Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, 100 Renfrew Street, Glasgow, G2 3DB


from our friend Laura Bissell:

Exactly 10 years after Making Routes launched in Glasgow, we are gathering together again as we embark on a new phase of our journey. 

Held in partnership between the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Edinburgh Futures Institute at the University of Edinburgh, the event starts at 7.00pm at RCS for a programme of performances and presentations on creative mobilities. At 8.30pm, we will then walk the length of Hope Street where it all began. 

The event will also celebrate the publication of our new book with Triarchy Press: Making Routes: Journeys in Performance 2010-2020. Copies of this will be available for sale on the evening.

We have invited some of the Making Routes contributors and collaborators to join the authors Laura Bissell and David Overend. These include Phil Smith and Helen Billinghurst (Crab & Bee), Sarah Hopfinger and Beverley Hood. These artists and researchers will help us think into the future of this project at a time when art and mobility are being radically revalued.

We hope you will be able to join us in person to mark this important milestone, and please confirm your attendance with my colleague Katherine McAinsh at RCS has a Track and Trace procedure for all access to campus, so please also RSVP with your mobile contact number so we can comply with this. We take your privacy very seriously, and a copy of our privacy notice can be found at

Please note due to restricted capacity places are limited, and our audience conditions for entry can be read here.

We anticipate the event will also be live streamed. If you are unable to attend, but would like to view the event online, please do let us know and a link will be sent to you.

We hope to see you on Thursday 23 September.
