Jackie Shearer

Season 1, Episode 10,  Aug 10, 2021, 03:00 PM

This episode is a conversation with Jackie Shearer of Dennistoun about her life and work.
Jackie was brought up in Glasgow and East Kilbride and has had a long and fascinating career in the arts sphere. 
 We talk about growing up in East Kilbride, the role of a good 80’s jumble sale, the thriving music scene of the 80’s, how Tom Leonard and Alasdair Gray’s work really connected with her as a young person, then how she stepped into working in the arts. 

We also talk about comparisons between the East End in the past and the present. 

Tales Fae the East is an artist in residence project from Glasgow Life.  I share the position with Tim Morozzo who will be taking photo portraits of the participants.
