"Kitten" mascot

A small fabric soft "kitten" mascot.

Lviv National Academy of the Arts has been a hub for displaced staff and students since the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Volunteers have been making camouflage nets for the front line. But alongside this they have also been making small toys/mascots for the soldiers from the leftover camouflage fabric. The Ukrainian soldiers are affectionately called “Our Kittens”, their Kittens fighting for Ukraine.

This "kitten" was gifted to GSA's Archives and Collections staff as a token of thanks from colleagues in the Lviv National Academy of the Arts. GSA Archives and Collections staff mentored LNAA staff through a digitisation project in 2023, as part of the funded project "Developing and Promoting Sustainable Cultural Heritage in Disaster Contexts" which was part of GSA's ongoing twinning with Lviv National Academy of the Arts. GSA's Archives and Collections staff were told that we here at GSA are also LNAA's "kittens", fighting to protect the heritage of LNAA and Ukraine.

The Glasgow School of Art Home Front Memorial

To mark the centenary of the First World War, GSA’s Archives & Collections and Exhibitions worked with Louise Welsh, Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow and Edwin Pickstone, GSA Lecturer, to create a memorial to GSA students, staff and governors who undertook work on the home front.

Consisting of three panels with text written by Louise and letterpress prints created by Edwin, the memorial was informed by archival research. The frame was designed and made by Steven Higgins with lettering from Erin Bradley-Scott.

This memorial is a partnership piece to GSA’s WWI Roll of Honour, created in 1925 by Dorothy Doddrell to commemorate students, staff and governors who had served in the armed forces.

The project was generously funded by Mr James McBroom whose father, James Nicol McBroom, was a prize-winning student at the School and who undertook munitions work during the war.
