Just been given this poem by Paula, the archivist
Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden. My words echo
Thus, in your mind.
from Burnt Norton by TS Eliot
Please join Ailie Rutherford and Creative Carbon Scotland for a

To Talk About The Future
In this last Green Tease of the year we’re delighted to invite you to Govanhill Baths with artist in residence Ailie Rutherford for a teatime discussion about the future.
During her residency Ailie has been hosting a series of discussions about the future. These discussions will inform the creation of new a artwork, Future Archive, for Govanhill Baths. To coincide with the Baths’ Centenary Ailie’s residency is focussing on the next 100 years, looking at what role the Baths will play as a central hub and how local community might develop by 2114.
Building on previous discussions, Ailie will lead us to consider themes of community ownership, communal living, resource consumption and how new technologies might alter the way we live.
We hope you can join us for tea, coffee and mince pies to see off 2014!
