Scarlett Shaw (6) from Springburn thanking her local fire and ambulance crews
Glasgow Life has launched a new campaign aimed at uniting the people of Glasgow in an exhibition of positivity during the coronavirus pandemic. Tapping into a trend that has been widely embraced in recent weeks, the city is encouraging families and households across the city to create their own unique ‘People Make Glasgow’ posters and to display them alongside the rainbows already in their windows.
The aim is to create a sense of togetherness using our iconic and much-loved city brand and to say “thank you” – whether it’s simply to your neighbour for helping you with your shopping, or to our frontline key workers for their incredible efforts in keeping us safe and keeping our communities running.
People can join in by downloading the poster here or by coming up with your own version and displaying it in your window or on social media.
If posting on social, the City has been asked to please use the hashtags #PeopleMakeGlasgow and #GlasgowLifeGoesOn, and remember to tag @PeopleMakeGLA and @GlasgowLife. Citizens have also been asked for your ‘likes’ on Glasgow Life’s own social channels e.g. Glasgow Sport, including Linkedin.
Young artist Scarlett Shaw (6) from Springburn helped us to launch the campaign by presenting the first posters thanking her local fire and ambulance crews – and it goes without saying that this was part of a specially arranged visit for this purpose. For everyone’s safety, the stations are not generally open to visitors.
