Glasgow Conversations is a series of interviews with the people driving the culture of Glasgow forward today.

Meet the inspiring people behind the city's festivals, arts and performance venues, cultural experiences, social movements, sports, and more. Listening to these people will give you an insight into their motivations, dreams and challenges as they paint every day a picture of Glasgow that belies her historical reputation.

Meet Rosie Robertson, manager of the Calton Heritage and Learning Centre. In this interview, you'll hear a lot about the Calton, an area of Glasgow even some of us living in the city either have never heard of or at least think about very little. Rosie lives and works there. She talks with passion and integrity about its proud working class history, how the identity of those living there has been lost over the years in the face of lazy ignorance and indoctrination.
