Our Hub Mondays are a chance for groups to come in and see the space. If you’re new to our Hub, or if you’re already familiar with us, come and pop in! There will be tea and coffee, an opportunity to chat to our Hub volunteers and network, and dedicated time to see the Byres Community Hub space and our public spaces in Clarice Pears.


10am: welcome with tea, coffee, and biscuits

10.30am: Tour of our Hub and Clarice Pears building

11am: Topic presented by a researcher or community partner and open discussion/networking


In the community consultation to develop what became Byres Community Hub, ‘advice for community organisations undertaking own research’ was one of key things that respondents wanted to see provided through the hub.  Participants in our coproduction workshop wanted to see the space used to facilitate research collaborations between academics and community organisations and the Hub was envisaged as a platform to ‘bring people together with similar interests’ and for ‘mutual skill sharing’.

A focus group participant said:

‘We’re all in these little silos of research in the community, whereas the community should be at the centre. And if it has that kind of ethos, where the community can have their say, they can influence, and are the power then I think that would be the unique selling point.’ 

So our Hub Mondays are also a means to facilitate networking between community, between university and between community and university.  They help realise the goals within our consultation and bring more skills, knowledge and experience in our research.  So if you have something you would like to talk through or make connections, we hope you can join us at one soon.
