The Women’s Unit is the name of a free feminist artspace in Castlemilk which formed phase two of a year long artist residency between Glasgow Womens Library and Castlemilk Community Centre. The residency focussed on women who had faced violence and abuse. McIntosh secured the space as an environment that women could utilise on their own terms, a place to learn, connect with other women, access creative resources and build resilience.
A 12 week programme of workshops commenced in September 2015. To date the Unit has hosted several exhibitions, taken part in Southside Film Festival at the invitation of GOMA and most recently we exhibited TOUGH WEEKS at the CCA in Glasgow.The Unit is currently run by participants on a voluntary basis.
