Glasgow School of Art Archives & Collections
This is a small, but unique dataset, contributed by Glasgow School of Art Archives & Collections. The dataset itself tells you a little about a handful of the alumni of GSA, students between 1950 and 1970. There’s associated content that will be available on the day, including audio interviews with each student (transcripts included in the dataset) plus a couple of photographs.

What are the Glasgow School of Art Archives & Collections?
The Glasgow School of Art’s Archives and Collections are an outstanding resource for the study of art, design, architecture and art education.
They comprise a wide range of material from School records to artworks and architectural drawings, textile pieces, plasters casts, photographs and furniture. Our holdings include approximately 300 items by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, giving us the third largest Mackintosh holding in the world.
These items are housed in state of the art storage areas, while our Archives and Collections Centre provides first class facilities for researchers.
The Archives and Collections Centre is located in the basement of The Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Building.
What are they interested in?
The data and content we’ve supplied for Culture Hack represents a small trial project we undertook to record interviews with GSA alumni.
We’re specifically interested in how we publish this data, making it available to more people who want to find out about the history of the art school, the courses we run and / or what happens to our alumni.
Can we provide ways for people to contact one another, to track one another and stay in touch with one another for instance?
