Our overall vision is to bring Maryhill Burgh Halls back into the heart of the community of Maryhill, to ensure it once more becomes a focal point for local community activity and pride.
Through the development of the new Maryhill Burgh Halls, we are aiming:
To provide accommodation to enable the development of local services
To provide a focus in the centre of the community for community activity and celebration
To encourage increased levels of community participation in local activities, including the management of the Halls.
To complement other regeneration activity in the area.
Through activities based in the centre to help to increase confidence amongst young people and adults
Through increased access to learning and personal development, to help to increase skills levels locally
To engender an increased sense of local history and heritage amongst local residents
To increase awareness of Maryhill and its history outside the area
To contribute to building a sense of pride in the area.
To ensure that the building is well maintained and the focus it provides is financially sustainable.
Through the above, we provide opportunity to engage in arts, culture and heritage in a variety of ways. Through workshops, hirers bringing events from local arts organisations, through to the National organisations and finally to the development of our own exhibitions, walks, talks and tours. The community are encouraged to get involved in the development of our Museum and exhibition programme as well as directing what they would like to see going on in the Halls.
Through our volunteering programmes, experience can be gained in a huge number of areas, from reception and administration right through to giving tours, developing workshops and media production / social media and marketing (and everything in between).
