The People Unite

About The People Unite

The people of Glasgow celebrate and honour the people of Berlin by building a Berlin landmark on a massive scale in cardboard. Volunteers will build the bricks over the course of a week at the Briggait. The bricks will be transferred to Glasgow Green on the 3rd August where 100’s of volunteers will build them into a massive landmark building. On August 4th thousands will gather to celebrate the achievement and see it ceremoniously topple.

If you are interested in volunteering and working with Olivier and his team to create and build the sculpture, come and join us. You must be aged 9 years and above (9 years – 12 years old should be accompanied by a parent or carer).

The sculpture is made from cardboard bricks created in sessions at The Briggait Glasgow, between, Sun 29th July – Thurs 2nd August, 9.30 to 1pm and 2 to 5.30 pm. 30 people max in each session.

The People Unite is presented by Olivier Grosstete and curated by UZ Arts.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The People Unite are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
