Seeing Differently: A Wild Words Writing Walk along the River Kelvin, 

Sunday 20 July 1-4pm
On its long and winding path, the River Kelvin runs through the heart of Glasgow’s West End, taking in the Botanical Gardens and Kelvingrove Park; familiar to many local residents. But how much of the little details do we really notice everyday, as we walk along the path? How much do we really see? Join poet Nalini Paul for an inspirational walk and Creative Writing workshop, which covers a small stretch of the riverside path, giving you the chance to slow down and absorb the natural atmosphere and to see nature and wildlife anew.
 Meet at entrance to Kelvinbridge Subway at the bridge on Great Western Road, finishing up at Kibble Palace in Glasgow Botanics

All events are free. Children should be accompanied by parents/adult and please wear suitable footwear.
