Abigale Neate-Wilson

Programme coordinator, Agile City in Glasgow United Kingdom

Agile City is a community interest company that creates space for work, events and learning.

We operate across two buildings – Civic House and The Glue Factory – and deliver a public programme of events, talks and workshops that explore cultural and social approaches to city development.

We are based in Speirs Locks, north Glasgow – an area that has been dramatically affected by loss of industry and the construction of the M8 motorway in the 1960’s. We have worked in this area since 2011 and our projects respond to this context by considering sustainable approaches to repurposing industrial buildings and addressing issues of vacant space through activation, testing and learning.
