May 5th – Streetland

streetlandposterturquoiseheartSTREETLAND

The Vagabond wandered the streets of Govanhill , with reference to its Gaelic namesake (‘Gobhann’ – ‘Smith’) telling tales of Smiths, Smithys and Smithying.  Streetland is an excellent community-run festival focussed on strengthening community and community facilities in Govanhill, a poor area with a large immigrant population.  I was pleased to befriend a group of Roma kids, though I promise I’m not an aspiring Fagin!   Click on their logo (right) to visit the site!
