For What It Is Worth

Ailie Rutherford

The People’s Bank of Govanhill project was initiated in 2015. The project evolved from her residency at Govanhill Baths in Glasgow to become a long term collaborative research project on community currency.


In an area frequently described as deprived, the project takes Govanhill's existing alternative economy as its starting point, considering the diversity and richness of the local community as a form of wealth Ailie Rutherford is a visual artist. Her collaborative practice is grounded in the places she works; inviting people to become co-producers of works that activate local public space and collectively imagine alternatives to the way we live now.
