A project with Paria Goodarzi and ISARO Community Initiative’s Youth Group
Over the 2022 summer holidays members of ISARO Community Initiative’s youth group worked with artist Paria Goordarzi to create a collaborative artwork at the site of a former fort in Bearsden. This process was documented by digital heritage volunteer Gaby Somarriba Rocha on the grounds of Bearsden Baptist Church.
