Govan set to hear ‘the art of noise’

The ‘January Reshuffle’ has become an annual event held at the popular Pearce Institute in Govan. The January Reshuffle programme offers a wide range of activities, talks and workshops which mixes family fun with learning and aims to show how much more there is to community life. This year’s theme of ‘the art of noise’ will demonstrate how to stand-up, shout-up and shout out for your community

“We hope to encourage through a mixture of enjoyment and learning that there is a life beyond television in our community. We only have to “reshuffle” our priorities.”

The Reshuffle, which has been running each January for the last three years is a day event which fills the community centre with activities, talks and workshops in a variety of community themes – The reshuffle is completely run by volunteers and good-will and is in receipt of no funding. A major emphasis is on attracting families and all ages.
What we offer is an opportunity for folk to try out a few ideas and experiences that are different from the telly. The last Reshuffle dealt with Common Good issues and green space, as well as lots of things for kids to do – from science activities like experimenting with different materials, soldering and building small electronic circuits. The Galgael boat builders were at hand to demonstrate and let people try out different crafts and the Cardboard Club where weans can work together and build there own spaces. As well as these activities there will be a series of.
talks and films along with The Radical Independent Bookfair Project
